Sxm Alliance For Equality is a platform for LGBT people and their allies to engage in meaningful conversation about the state of affairs of the community/communities on St. Maarten/St. Martin. For now this is a closed and secret group, if you have been added it means that you have either self-identified as LGBT or as an Ally (and yes, even on SM we need allies).
Your input will be most appreciated. Feel free to share, to start topics, to comment. Let's make this a meaningful platform for engagement. This is also a platform that also concerns itself with those who identify as Queer, Intersex and Asexual. Feel free to add friends with discretion.
Our objectives are as follows:
1) To promote the social acceptance and inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, as well as others to be determined by the board, in order to create an island free of stigma and discrimination towards said persons, where they enjoy freedom and equality at all levels of society.
2) To promote personal empowerment by encouraging the awareness of one's own (sexual) identity, and social situation in general, and where needed (and possible) support those LGBT individuals who are in need of assistance and care.
3) To represent the collective interests of the target group referred to above, as well as others to be determined by the board.
4) To improve awareness, promote equality, as well as educate the LGBT community and general population on matters pertaining to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, especially where they relate (but are not limited) to the LGBT community.
The St. Maarten/St. Martin Alliance for Equality seeks to achieve these objectives through legal means, including:
a) giving of information and advice
b) promoting awareness and education, as well as issuing of publications
c) conducting social activities/events
d) establishing and maintaining contacts with authorities and organizat
