Religious leaders can huff and puff until they are blue in the face, the local LGBT community will not be deterred by their criticism. This was the view expressed by Barbados Pride Committee member, Ro-Ann Mohammed, in reference to a press conference held on Thursday. Speaking to Loop News ahead of Sundays’ planned Pride Parade, Mohammed said the criticism coming from the religious community was expected but the LGBT community is not too bothered by it. “These attitudes from these specific church leaders are nothing new. Whenever we are having a march or doing anything that surrounds LGBT visibility we prepare ourselves for some backlash or resistance."The Parade, originally scheduled for July 15, is set to move off from Rihanna Drive at 3 pm this Sunday and run through The City.
