Between September 24 and 26, 2009, IGLHRC held its first strategy workshop for trans activists in the Caribbean. The workshop, designed to provide activists from the most marginalized communities with training in documentation and human rights advocacy, was held in conjunction with the Caribbean Forum for Liberation and Acceptance of Genders and Sexualities (CARIFLAGS) and the Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC). The videos below capture the hardships and challenges confronted by some of the activists who attended the workshop.
It began in San Francisco in 1999 and has since grown to encompass memorials around the world.
