Tolerant Caribbean island of Guadeloupe should reach out to LGBT+ tourists

In a press release, LGBT+ rights organisations from Guadeloupe, the diaspora and Haiti, as well as this news site, denounced the Comité du Tourisme des Îles de Guadeloupe for making no effort to publicise how attractive Guadeloupe can be for LGBT+ tourists, leaving the impression that the archipelago is stuck in its homophobic past. This is the associations’ press release, issued on August 11, 2023: We would like to thank [the French advocacy organisation] Stop Homophobie for having deleted racist comments about  Guadeloupe that had been added to a post on Instagram about the flop of the latest “Pride de Guadeloupe”. The failure of that Pride march was not necessarily due to homophobia  – as alleged in the deleted comments – but rather to shortcomings in organization, coordination and security.
