A group of anti-gay pastors plans a march against marriage equality tomorrow. O Blog Dee O Blog Da reports:

The question is – Who is trying to give these laws to the Haitian LGBT community? Since the answer is “no one”, once again religious leaders are using advances in LGBT rights in Western countries to further persecute the LGBT community at home. The march by these religious groups will only further increase intolerance and violence pushing more people into hiding. It will increase discrimination. It will further impact health care opportunities and HIV/AIDS prevention for those who often need it most.

Homosexuality is legal in Haiti, but there is currently no effort to bring marriage equality to the island.
