In 2018, we “united for love” to make history and create our new future! Thousands came together across many divides and placed a positive spotlight on the LGBTQIA community in T&T and its contribution to national development. PrideTT set a new standard for pride celebrations globally! While this achievement is one to be proud of, for our more vulnerable community members like our Trans-family and others, it is still ‘pride and hide’ as they struggle with inequitable protection for and access to human rights – suffering daily abuse and violence. Yet, we must never forget that they were the originators of LGBTQIA pride.
We must love, protect and give back to them. Therefore, for PrideTT 2019, we have joined with the world in commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall riots – which sparked the first “Gay Pride” celebrations – led bravely by Marsha P. Johnson & Sylvia Rivera. Our 2019 theme #equALL reminds us that there can be no true pride until ALL can celebrate their truth EQUITABLY! Let us focus on that which unites us and continue to build a new paradigm of #equALL freedoms! Celebrate your PRIDETT 2019!
