Earlier today, I had the honor of participating in the @nycpride inaugural Human Rights Conference. I shared space with 300+ attendees, including fellow panelists Eli Szenes-Strauss, Vijou Laban Bryant, and Sasha Neha Ahuja on "The Intersectional Revolution" panel, organized by The Center and moderated by Shijuade Kadree, Senior Director of Public Policy & Advocacy at @lgbtcenternyc. The panel conversation focused on unpacking intersectionality and how being LGBTQ identified is only one part of an individual’s lived experience, which also shapes their advocacy in other movements. ️
In addition to uplifting #Caribbean #LGBTQ voices in #NYC via the @caribbeanequalityproject’s work, the conference also included international voices such as my Caribbean sister, @kennibay hailing from St. Lucia. She is one of the 2018 NYC Pride Grand Marshall's, an @outrightintl’s Caribbean-based Advisor and the Executive Director of @ec_equality.
