In early 2013 the regional research organisation Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES) concluded a national survey across Guyana which examined the attitudes of Guyanese towards homosexuals and was a component of a three-country examination of similar attitudes. These studies were funded by the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Barbados HIV/Aids Commission and sought to explore, benchmark and in the case of Barbados track, local attitudes toward this section of the population which has recently been the focus of increased interest.
The survey report (available at http://ufdc.ufl.edu/AA00016151/00001 ) was launched in Guyana on 19th July, 2013 at Moray House Trust.
The launch event featured a presentation by Peter Wickham, Director of CADRES Inc; followed by a panel discussion responding to the report. The panellists were Bishop Francis Alleyne - Head of the Catholic Diocese of Guyana; Dr Melissa Ifill - senior lecturer in the Department of Social Studies at the University of Guyana; and Colleen McEwan - director of the Guyana Rainbow Foundation.
The recordings and related items from the event are stored here courtesy of CADRES and the panellists. The slide cast of Mr Wickham's presentation is available at http://www.slideshare.net/CaribbeanIRN/guyana-attitudessurveypresentation-24436100
