Caribbean: Light Over Darkness

Categories: Caribbean, Trinidad & Tobago, Digital Activism, Human Rights, LGBTQ+, Migration & Immigration, Religion

Today is the Hindu Festival of Lights – and while Barbados Free Press [1] wishes everyone a “Subh Divali”, Trinidad diaspora blogger Jumbie's Watch [2] is concerned about “problems with the hazards caused by fireworks” and Globewriter [3], in the context of LGBT rights, says: “Divali…is the Hindu celebration of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. I am not a religious sort myself but I think most of my readers would join in me wishing for a bit more knowledge rather than ignorance.”
