BARBADOS’ FIRST GAY COMMUNITY POSTER on same sex abuse is finally here.
Devoid of acts of violence, which is not initially noticeable according to some health care providers, this is the FIRST positive step in terms of recognition… survivors of same sex abuse have some where to turn to.
The research demonstrated that health care providers need to exercise more empathy as well as ensuring that survivors report abuse.
BABY STEPS… It is indeed subtle. Hopefully, the next step would be to build positive dialogue on the issues which can facilitate more projects locally on recognising the gay community. The research was conducted at the St. Philip Clinic. Posters are to be placed in clinics island wide. Do send your questions or comments.
