An Advocate Against Homophobia
Transphobia and Biphobia
Though still seen as a controversial topic, since 2014, Mrs. Simplis Barrow continues to raise awareness about the ill effects of Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
Observed each year on May 17th, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia is a global reminder that the struggle for equal human rights continues. Firmly believing that no one should be deprived of their most basic rights, most importantly the right to security, each year, on May 17th, Mrs. Simplis Barrow releases either a written or video message to encourage others to respect and uphold the dignity and human rights of others, despite sexual orientation or gender identity.
In the words of Mrs. Simplis Barrow, “we are all connected, and the time has long passed for us to eliminate all barriers to equality, to fight discrimination of all kinds, and to end violence based on differences.”
Let us stand together for love, respect, peace and human rights for all!
