LGBT Equality Litigation in the Caribbean, now avail on video

Back in November, IFLS hosted LGBT Equality Litigation in the Caribbean, an event put together by Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights (see original post here). The other day, we hosted another Envisioning Panel, looking at the recent decision of India’s Supreme Court to overturn a lower court decision which struck down s.377 of the Indian Penal Code.  Here’s the original post advertising the panel.  As soon as Envisioning has video, we will post that.

Please do check out Envisioning’s website, here.  You can find full video of the LGBT Equality Litigation in the Caribbean panel  at Envisioning’s Vimeo site (or via the event’s page on their website), here.   Thanks especially to Nancy Nicol and the rest of the envisioning team for allowing us to host.
