The Caribbean Equality Project (CEP) is a Queens-based community organization that empowers, advocates for, and represents Black and Brown, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, and queer Caribbean immigrants in New York City. The organization’s work focuses on advocacy for LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights, gender equity, racial justice, immigration and mental health services, and ending hate violence in the Caribbean diaspora. To date, CEP is the only educational-based agency serving the Caribbean-American LGBTQ+ community in New York City, with a dedicated aim to cultivating supportive and progressive Caribbean neighborhoods free of violence, oppression, and discrimination. CEP’s intersectional organizing fosters solidarity, builds coalitions, develops community partnerships, and conducts legislative activism to advance LGBTQ+ rights in New York State. As a Black and Brown immigrant-led social justice and human rights organization, CEP’s liberation movement educates, inspires, uplifts, and celebrates Afro and Indo-Caribbean, queer and trans non-religious, Muslim, Hindu and Christian, documented and undocumented members of the Caribbean diaspora of all generations, all categories of ability, and all HIV statuses.
