Since its very inception, Colours Caribbean has promoted visibility for our LGBTQIA+ community.

The journey began in 2015 with TEDxSevenMileBeach at Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort, where Billie Bryan was featured as one of the speakers.

“…Billie has come to recognise the very serious need for the redefinition of sex, gender and everything in between. She just might teach you a thing or two about yourself.”

The event served as the launchpad of what would eventually become the “Colours Cayman Campaign” the following year.

Colours Cayman Campaign Launch

“The Colours Cayman Campaign aims to create safe spaces for members of the LGBTQ community by building a network of local businesses that have pledged to stand up against harassment and discrimination.”

Decals of the Colours Caribbean logo are hand-delivered to those business owners and representatives who have agreed to support the campaign by signing this pledge, which may be applied to the front entrance doors or windows of their establishment, assuring customers and employees alike that theirs is a business that will not tolerate discrimination nor harassment based on the sexual orientation or gender identity of anyone within their establishment.

Educational Workshops

“Colour Me Loved” Gender & Sexuality Workshops

2017 saw the introduction of our “What Are They Teaching You?!” Gender & Sexuality Workshops.

Part of our “Colour Me Loved” campaign, these workshops were hosted regularly and designed to educate attendees on a variety of topics surrounding these subjects, as well as provide monthly support groups for those suffering from mental illness who identify as LGBTQIA+. The workshops were typically held at the George Town Public Library but were additionally extended to one-off sites such as various schools, universities, workplaces and departments of government.



Non-Profit Formalisation

Colours Caribbean becomes the first legally registered LGBTQIA+ non-profit organisation in the Cayman Islands.

Colours Cayman strives to redefine our cultural views on gender and sexuality, stand up to political corruption and provide support and education to our marginalised, at-risk LGBTQIA+ youth.

Out Of Our Shells

“Come out, be visible and show Cayman our true colours! Support our LGBTQIA+ community by wearing your brightest threads and circle through town with us, sporting signs of love and pride for our people.”

Colours Cayman organises first ever LGBTQIA+ rally in the Cayman Islands in support of marriage equality.

Hundreds of people came out on Sunday to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community for the first ever ‘Out Of Our Shells’ march in Cayman.

In a very peaceful and colourful event after several days of unpleasant attacks from lawmakers aimed at them, the LGBTI community demonstrated they were undeterred in pushing for an end to discrimination and hiding from mainstream society. The event was organised by Colours Cayman, a local advocacy group for LGBTI issues, and was promoted as not just a celebration of the legalisation of same-sex marriage but also as a response to the backlash from politicians.
