Discriminatory Laws against LGBT People in the Eastern Caribbean
July 8, 2021
We regret that the government of Saint Lucia has, once again, refused to accept the recommendations to decriminalize same-sex relations between consenting adults. Articles 132 and 133 of the criminal code punish so-called “gross indecency” and “buggery” with up to 10 years imprisonment. They violate international human rights law and have a detrimental impact on the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.
