Drinks & Conversation: Winning LGBTI Rights in Belize

On August 10, 2016, Caleb Orozco achieved the first-ever successful court challenge to a Caribbean anti-sodomy law. This remarkable accomplishment has sent shock waves across the region where nine other jurisdictions still retain anti-sodomy laws, largely imposed during British colonization.

On November 18, 2016, Caleb will provide an enthusiastic presentation on the work that led up to this ground-breaking case, the status of the appeal by the Government of Belize, and how the global north can effectively assist with the ongoing Caribbean LGBTQI liberation effort.

At Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto with Tasheka Lavann.
