Introducing Donnya Piggott
Donnya had to overcome prejudice and personal challenges when she decided to set up an advocacy group for sexual minorities. Barbados – Gays and Lesbians and All-sexuals Against Discrimination (B-Glad) is a lone lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) human rights organisation on the island.
This week Donnya was invited to The Commonwealth Youth Gender and Equality Network (CYGEN) in Malta, where she facilitated workshops on sexual orientation and gender identity.
She also spoke at the Kaleidoscope Trust’s Annual Lecture in London, to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT). The Kaleidoscope Trust works to uphold the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people internationally and Donnya joined young people to discuss LGBT rights.
