Our Circle Belize Makes Strides Against LGBTQ Discrimination


The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is being celebrated today, May 17. This year’s theme is “Our Bodies, Our Lives, Our Rights.” The theme is geared at bringing to the forefront the concern that these persons cannot fulfil their full potential without exercising bodily autonomy.  Our Circle is a national organisation that provides quality services to family units formed by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) persons across the country. The Managing Director of Our Circle, Derricia Castillo, explained to Love News that although progress has been slow, they have had major achievements in promoting the inclusiveness of LGBTQ families.
