    Did you know...

    That homosexuality is illegal in Trinidad and other Caribbean islands? They talking about it on RedFM now. Here's the article they are referring to. What are your thoughts, should this law be enforced in Trinidad and how can it be enforced, do they get charged if they're caught in the act or of suspicion of being gay?

    Gay and lesbian rights in Trinidad and Tobago

    Legal Issues


    So what are their rights? At present, none. Homosexuality is actually illegal in Trinidad and Tobago as in much of the English-speaking Caribbean with more emphasis on homosexual men as Section 13 of the Sexual Offences Act 1986 criminalises "buggery" (sexual intercourse per anum by a male person with a male person or by a male person with a female person). This section, strengthened in 2000, states that a person guilty of committing buggery is liable on conviction to imprisonment.

    And under Article 8 (18/1) of the Immigration Act, homosexual men and women are not even allowed to enter the country. However, these laws are not enforced.

    Nicole believes that like the US, we should be working toward anti-discrimination laws to curb discriminatory employment practices such as bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, and compensation, and various types of harassment.

    Val3netodebone if its illegal then it SHOULD have been forced, its pathetic that we should have to debate if an illegal law should be enforced..but yuh know in trini some laws are just there to have in print, the authorities dont care to enforce them..(another law that is not properly enforced is under age drinking)
