In the French Caribbean island Guadeloupe, the months of July and August have been a time for reflection about activism within the local LGBT+ community. Leïla,  of the association Secret’s Out, agreed to talk to us about her  organization. Erasing 76 Crimes: Why set up a new organization to help the LGBT+ residents of Guadeloupe? Leïla: I used to live in France, and when I returned to Guadeloupe after the Covid 19 epidemic, I discovered Amalgame Humani’s, who is in charge of  Voix arc-en-ciel, a  hotline for victims of LGBT phobia in the archipelago.
