UWI Joy: LGBTQ JOY (or Joy for short), is a student club registered under the University of West Indies St. Augustine Guild of Students that seeks 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 extends its reach to allies which are those who are not a part of the LGBTQ+ community, but show support and acceptance. Joy seeks 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.
