TRANSGENDER Guyanese sex workers Gulliver (Quincy) McEwan and Isabella (Seyon) Persaud say Monday’s ruling on their constitutional challenge, by their Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), was important for them.
In a statement read during a press conference in Guyana, broadcast live on SASOD (Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination) Guyana’s Facebook page, McEwan said they were “very happy.”
Persaud, in her own statement, said the transgender community in Guyana has “always been treated like trash.”
She admitted that it was a hard life for transgender people there. McEwan and Persaud were two of the four litigants who successfully challenged the constitutionality of Guyana’s cross-dressing laws.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
