Three separate participants in a rally celebrating the repeal of Trinidad and Tobago’s buggery law have been hounded out of their homes. The Colonial-era law was repealed in the country which belongs to the British Commonwealth earlier this month and gay sex is not considered a crime there anymore. But people’s minds are not so easy to change. There are some people who were literally kicked out of their homes for celebrating the law being repealed and now the local LGBT rights groups are seeking accommodation for them. One of the men was told by his landlord that he was no longer welcome after being photographed at the rally, while another was harassed into fleeing his home. The third, a young man, was reportedly disowned by his family for attending the celebrations. Viral videos in the country have shown dramatic scenes at the rally, which led to a clash between the activists and anti-LGBT religious campaigners. At least one person was reported being spat at and punched.
