The Caribbean Equality Project

Who we are:

The Caribbean Equality Project is a non-profit, volunteerism-driven community organization based in the borough of Queens, NY, and is committed to strengthening the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people of Caribbean descent and origin. We are dedicated to cultivating a supportive and progressive Caribbean community by promoting empowerment and visibility through educational, social and culturally infused organizing and advocacy. In addition, CEP provides an authentic safe space for shared experiences, fostering new relationships by uniting multi-generational support with a budding spectrum of programs. These programs aim to promote acceptance, reduce stigma and eliminate all forms of discrimination in the LGBTQ Caribbean diaspora.

Our Mission:

The Caribbean Equality Project’s mission is to promote social change, awareness, and acceptance by empowering and strengthening the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people of Caribbean descent in the New York area. We are dedicated to creating a sustainable and progressive community free of violence and all forms of discrimination and oppression by: promoting visibility and empowerment through advocacy, community organizing, public education, cultural and social programming. Our advocacy efforts are directed towards: cultivating community partnerships, greater family acceptance and creating a society based on respect, inclusion and equality, regardless of an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity within the Caribbean diaspora.
