As Haiti endures chaos, shortages, inflation and gang warfare, the LGBTQ community shares the nation’s agony, even as it has challenges and plans of its own. Under pressure from the international community and regional states concerned about the power vacuum in Haiti, a new transitional council set to organize general elections in 2026 has just been set up after weeks of procrastination, with Edgar Leblanc Fils as its leader. This is the second transitional council in three years, after the one set up following the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse in 2021. The capital, Port-au-Prince, including its ports, is largely under the rule of violent gangs who promote the transshipment of cocaine bound for the USA, while simultaneously causing shortages of legal goods.
