Being a LGBTIQ Activist in South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago

Welcome to OutRight podcasts. We partnered with StoryCorps to interview and archive LGBTIQ stories during OutRight's Advocacy Week. Our annual advocacy week brings together LGBTIQ activists from around the world to New York for a week of high-level meetings and activities at the United Nations.

During the week, we found time to record activists talking about a variety of things ranging from their own personal life stories and relationships to the progression of LGBTIQ rights in their home countries.

In this StoryCorps interview, Kim and Ro-Ann discuss work life as an LGBTIQ activist and the expectations about coming out / being out to family in their countries.
