Who we are

United Caribbean Trans Network (UCTRANS) is the first Caribbean trans initiative that will encompass our voices together to advocate on behalf of the Caribbean trans community to promote the protection and recognition of the human rights of trans persons in our region. UCTRANS envisions a network that highlights issues experienced by all trans persons and wishes to ensure that trans-masculine and non-binary persons are represented. We want to work in conjunction with our communities and government to champion the human rights protection and healthcare needs of trans persons as well as to provide support in leadership, governance and strategic guidance to the local transgender movements in the region, including those in The Bahamas, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname, Dominican Republic, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and Haiti.
