Abstract

The article examines how countering homophobia has become an essential element of the human rights agenda for many western activists and the controversy around the claims made about this issue in the Caribbean context and its implications for those of Caribbean descent around the world. It highlights how institutional racism plays an important role in the construction of homophobia in this part of the world which serves to make this problem harder to resolve.
