To Be Gay In Haiti Is A Complete No No. Same-sex sexual activity between consenting adults in private has been legal since 1986 in Haiti. The age of consent is eighteen.

It is unclear if LGBT people may adopt or have custody of children. Homosexuality and cross-dressing are seen as taboo, if not also immoral by the largely Catholic Haitians.

In 2013, the Dominican Constitutional Tribunal retroactively removed citizenship from tens of thousands of Dominicans. Most of them are of Haitian descent – a historically marginalized community. This has left them unable to carry out basic civil tasks such as register children at birth, enroll in school and university, participate in the formal economy, or move around the country without risk of detention and expulsion. In 2014, President Danilo Medina’s administration attempted to mitigate the high court ruling with a Naturalization Law aimed at recognizing the citizenship claims of those affected by the 2013 decision. Despite a promising legal framework, the law has been fraught with design and implementation flaws that have thwarted the naturalization process. Tens of thousands of Dom...
This video is about Gays Under Arrest In Haiti. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Haiti may face social and legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents.

Norman Williams Jupiter Music Recording Studio 10 Fiske Pl, Suite 411 Mt Vernon, New York 10550 Tel; 914-665-2233 Haiti was disenfranchised by the United States early on in its history, this is what led to the demise of Haiti's economy. Haiti's economy and downfall was not brought about because of doing deals with the devil, like Pat Robertson said on the 700 club. It is the United States that has made a deal with the devil, by making the Louisiana Purchase from people who did not have a right to sell it, and then systematically killing, displacing and murdering the inhabitants of that land, because the United States did not have legal means to tax these Indians. Haiti is Disenfranchised to Death. No I am not Haitian, no I am not anti-American I am a former United States Marine who c...
A group of Caribbean nations has launched a legal case to seek reparations from former slave owning states in Europe. The Caribbean Community, known as Caricom, claims that European governments were responsible for slavery, genocide and racial apartheid. They're calling for an apology and cancelation of debts as part of a ten point plan. What is the legacy of slavery in Haiti, what is the present day slavery that thousands still experience in modern day Haiti, and what are the chances of a legal victory in the courts.
