The Potential of Technology to facilitate on-line and “real-world” work and progress for sexual minorities

Vidyaratha Kissoon Email : vidyak1@gmail.com

Some context..
Dear SASOD, Thank you for your wonderful work for the community. I am living in the United States and am doing some research for a project on Gay Life in Guyana. I have visited your site but am looking for more information if possible. There is not a lot of information online anywhere in the US. Is there any way you can help me find the following: 1. Expert witnesses in Guyana on the conditions for gay men. 2. People who can/willing to give personal accounts. 3. Sociologist/experts at the University of Guyana who is knowledgeable. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much, UT
