About this event
Embracing the spirit of the recent publication, Beyond Homophobia: Centering LGBTQ experiences in the Anglophone Caribbean (2020), activist photographer Amanda Taylor, BC ’22 will be in conversation with leading LGBTQ+ mobilizers who are creating networks of visibility and support for queer and trans life in Jamaica and beyond. Speakers include: Kymm Foster from TransWaveJA, working to advance the health, welfare, and well-being of the transgender community in Jamaica through gender recognition, equitable access to non-discriminatory health care, education, housing and employment; Emani Edwards from United Trans Creatives, which breaks through barriers in fashion, activism and social justice through image making and representation; Chaday Emmanuel represents Connek JA, which organizes events, media, and travel experiences that bring together queer family and allies across borders.
