Categories: Caribbean, Trinidad & Tobago, Citizen Media, Law, LGBTQ+, Politics, Youth

Globewriter [1] comments on a Senate debate about a clause of the Children's Bill “involving a clause that includes buggery”; B.C. Pires [2] adds: “The People‚Äôs Partnership of UNC [United National Congress] MPs [Ministers of Parliament] yesterday refused, despite urgings from Independent senators, to decriminalize same gender sexual activity between minors – even while ploughing ahead with decriminalizing the same activity between boys and girls. If ever there were a plain human rights issue, sexual orientation is it.”
