(CMR) With an aim to educate the community more this year, the Cayman Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Foundation will be launching its sexual health lectures soon.
Noel Cayasso-Smith, the foundation's president and founder, said the organization would also be working with the community to help secure a better understanding of the meaning of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer. In his New Year's Message, Cayasso-Smith said,
“As a community-based organization, we believe in building bridges and mending fences in the community. “
He said the CLGBTQ Foundation will continue to assist with counseling, health care, legal advice, life coaching, and other well-needed services.

He said community members do not have to be LGBTQ to reach out for assistance from the foundation. He explained:
“We are here to answer any questions you may have pertaining Civil partnership bill, dealing with understanding LGBTQ family members, how to deal with any child coming out to a parent, how to report abuse to the Police department.”
