St Lucia

It’s a Caribbean paradise unlike any other. But with outdated laws against homosexuality still in place, are we LGBT+ travellers really welcome to savour its delights?

We all have our own ‘deal breakers’ when it comes to picking our next holiday destination. But while the importance of five star service, volume of daiquiris and number of theme park rides will vary between us all, there’s one unifying decider – working out whether homosexuality is illegal in the country you’re visiting.

The Caribbean is an odd one. A quick Google shows that of the 15 countries making up the Caribbean Community bloc (a collective which includes St Lucia, Barbados, and Jamaica), only one – Suriname – has legalised same-sex sexual activity. It’s not the most encouraging of starts. But dig a little deeper, and there’s something culturally interesting to be found between the legal lines.
