About the event
We will create visibility and awareness of Caribbean LGBTQ+ New Yorkers, while celebrating our intersectional identities and call for Justice for Josiah “Jonty” Robinson.
The West Indian Day Parade is the largest convening of Caribbean people in NYC. Since 2015, Caribbean Equality Project has been participating in the parade. This year, we are mobilizing our partners and community members to continue amplifying Caribbean LGBTQ+ visibility as an act of resistance and to raise diaspora solidarity support, as we demand action, accountability, and Justice for Jonty.
Come march with us in cultural and carnival-inspired apparel as we celebrate the life of Josiah Robinson. Wear your country colors, or come just as you are, as we proudly celebrate our Caribbean and LGBTQ+ identities!
PLEASE DON'T FORGET YOUR FLAGS!
