Trans Case at CCJ
Members of the LGBT+ Community and Allies are invited to join members of the regional trans community in solidarity at their CCJ hearing.
This is the final appeal of the first Caribbean LBGT constitutional rights case to reach a final court.
It was brought after working class Black and Indian Trans-Guyanese were swept up and arrested under a 19th century law against crossdressing for an improper purpose.
They were fined in Magistrates Court and lectured to by the Chief Magistrate, and advised to give their lives to God. See this article for more details.
Interested persons are reminded to dress appropriately if they intend to enter the court room.
Further information will be provided closer to the date.
