UWI Professor axed over Homophobic Rhetoric! adminstush May 21, 2014 Special, Suss The UWI (University of The West Indies) has terminated the contract of Professor Brendan Bain as the director of the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training (CHART) Network. Bain’s termination came after he provided a statement in a high-profile case in Belize, in which Caleb Orozco, a gay man, challenged the constitutionality of an 1861 law that criminalises men having sex with men (MSM). Some 35 advocacy groups had written to the vice-chancellor of the UWI, Prof. E Nigel Harris, indicating that they had lost confidence in Bain as the head of CHART following his statement in the case. The groups also called for Bain to be removed. #whatdoyousay #freedomofspeech or #noroomfobigotry #LiveSTUSH Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
