More than 70 activists from 18 countries gathered last month in Sint Maarten to focus on the needs of lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (LBTQ) people assigned female at birth. The 11th Caribbean Women and Sexual Diversity Conference (CWSDC) provided a platform for sharing experiences, knowledge and strategies outside of conference-room walls. Although participants identified across a range of nationalities, racial, ethnic, age, social, educational and religious identities, they also discussed their shared struggles and barriers to wellbeing, justice and equality.
