The media was hosted this morning for a breakfast meeting to discuss the strengthening of LGBT families in Belize. There are over one hundred and sixty LGBT families in the country who are not legally recognized under the laws of Belize. The two-hour session highlighted the gaps in the system which excludes an LGBT person and their children. In one instance Derricia Castillo-Salazar alluded to the different types of family settings and how the laws do not adequately reflect Belize’s reality. The food assistance program was an example that she used to simplify how unrecognized they are.
