OUT in Belize
Whilst there have been improvements in recent years with the decriminalisation of same-sex activity in 2016, sexual and gender minorities do not fully experience the same human rights as others do in Belize.
Our ‘OUT in Belize’ research project is now working in partnership with Our Circle and other partner organisations, to document the lived experiences of sexual and gender minorities in Belize. You can read about the development of this research here.
Our OUT in Belize research project aims to examine the lived experiences of sexual and gender minorities in the nation state, working closely with Our Circle and other partner organisations. Our Circle envisions a Belizean society where all “LGBTQI+ formed family units, regardless of creation or composition, live in communities that recognize, respect, protect, and value them.
Whilst some legal rights have been won in Belize in recent years, social attitudes have not always kept up with legal progress, and so there is still much to be done.
This research is still ongoing, however more details will appear on this page soon. If you would like to hear about this research first,
