Trinidad and Tobago: Citizens Rally Behind Sprinter Michelle-Lee Ahye After 'Homophobic Swear' Campaign
Michelle-Lee Ahye, who made history as the first female athlete from Trinidad and Tobago to win gold in an individual track and field event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games last week, has received widespread support after an attempt was made to ridicule her for allegedly being a member of the LGBT community on social media. Members of the public in Trinidad and Tobago have also roundly condemned Guardian, a local newspaper, for featuring the details of Ahye's personal life on its front page Tuesday. The article, published just days after Trinidad & Tobago's High Court has ruled the country's sodomy laws were homophobic and unconstitutional.
