Day 62 – Saint Lucia
People who identify as LGBTQ in St Lucia face discrimination not experienced by heterosexual residents. Section 132 of the Criminal Code states that all homosexual acts are illegal, and that anyone who is found guilty of same-sex activity can be punished with up to 10 years of imprisonment.
Michael is abstaining from meat, fish and sugary treats to raise awareness of countries like Saint Lucia where it is illegal for people to identify as LGBTQ. If you would like to find out more about Michael’s ‘79 days’ challenge, please click here.
