PRESIDENT of the Tobago Pride Association (TPA) Todd MJ Denoon believes homophobia is perhaps the biggest challenge confronting the island’s LGBTQI community. While combatting homophobia still remains an uphill battle in some jurisdictions, he observed small islands like Tobago present an even greater challenge. “The main concern of the community is dealing with being able to come out and to have spaces that are queer-friendly. Battling homophobia is one of the biggest things,” he told Sunday Newsday.
