GAY AND LESBIAN PEOPLE in Barbados and the region should not be discriminated against just because of the life choices they make. That point was emphasized during a frank and at times animated exchange of views when the Barbados Gays, Lesbians and All-Sexuals Against Discrimination (BGLAD), along with the United States Embassy, hosted a panel discussion yesterday. Held in the moot court of the Law Faculty of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus, the topic was: The LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Human Rights Issue In The Caribbean. Speakers included CADRES research consultant Kristen Hinds; programme officer at the Bureau of Gender Affairs, Nalita Gajadhar; Anglican priest Reverend Charles Morris and BGLAD co-founder Ro-Ann Mohammad. Among the audience listening intently was CADRES director and talk-show host Peter Wickham.(CA)
