The notorious hate group World Congress of Families (WCF) began its fourth regional Caribbean conference in St. Johns Antigua. The conference will wrap up today.

The misleading theme of the rabidly anti-LGBTQ hate group’s regional conference is “Building Strong Caribbean Families – Upholding Marriage, the Family and the Sanctity of Human Life.”

Notorious American exporters of hate such as Sharon Slater, Brian Brown, Don Feder, Sharon Slater and Scott Stirm are listed as featured speakers for this event. The foreign minister of St. Lucia is also scheduled to appear at the conference.

WCF’s fourth Caribbean gathering comes a little more than a year after anti-LGBTQ exporters of hate descended on Barbados in April 2016.

WCF is one of the most active American organizations involved in the export of hate. Since 1997, it has organized events around the world that foster homophobia and transphobia under the guise of protecting the "natural family." WCF's activities range from holding conferences in Nigeria on denying rights to LGBTQ people to working to silence Russia’s LGBTQ community.

HRC stands in solidarity with LGBTQ activities in the Caribbean as this toxic gathering of exporters of hate meets this week. Read more about our work on countering the export of hate here.
