LGBTQ+ Advocacy and Support

UniPride

UNI Pride was formed by a group of individuals who realized that there is not much representation for the TLGBQIA+ Community within Universities in Trinidad & Tobago. 

We want to offer a Safe Space for persons to come (virtually and physically), be themselves and not have to hide who they really are. (Respecting everyone’s privacy)

Women’s Caucus

The primary mission of the Women’s Caucus is to identify the needs of women who love women and take the necessary step to address these needs. We also see ourselves playing a pivotal role in advocating for the rights of WLW within the context of the wider LGBT movement. Thus far our approach has centered on providing “safe” spaces for lesbian and bisexuals to network and have constructive and uplifting dialogue. In this vein the group hosts monthly sessions called CHAT, fostering networking and allowing women to have fun and recreate the WC also hosts social events.

LGBTQ JOY

LGBTQ JOY (or Joy for short), was a student club registered under the University of West Indies St. Augustine Guild of Students that sought to create a safe space in which members of the LGBTQ+ community can express themselves and take an active role in their community (not just the LGBTQ+ community) without fear of safety concerns. The club also extended its reach to allies which are those who are not a part of the LGBTQ+ community, but show support and acceptance. Joy sought to create an environment conducive to activism and awareness of issues in society that center around equality and rights. By giving our community a voice within an academic forum such as UWI, we hope to eradicate stereotypes and selective misanthropes regarding members of the community.
