Over the weekend, millions throughout the world gathered to honor LGBT rights and identities. Certainly, the growing visibility of LGBT parades and movements is an encouraging sign, there is still a long are many parts of the world (including in the United States) where homophobic violence and social stigmas still exist. One of the regions where homophobia generally is still a major issue is the Caribbean (in broad terms, though certainly there are variations from one area to another). That said, the Inter Press Service issued a report that suggests that, in spite of the ongoing challenges and threats the LGBT community often faces in many Caribbean nations, there are some very real and gradual improvements in LGBT rights, even if there is still a long way to go.
