Trinidad & Tobago has beautiful Caribbean scenery, beaches, climate and lush green hills–and industry. It’s another one of the many tropical islands that make up the archipelago that stretches from Venezuela to Cuba. Although homosexuality is illegal the laws are mostly ignored.
The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago consists of two main islands, Trinidad and Tobago, and numerous smaller landforms in the southern Caribbean. Unlike most of the English-speaking Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago’s economy is primarily industrial-based, with an emphasis on petroleum and petrochemicals. Although Tobago is often referred to as "the jewel of the Caribbean" and contains a few resort areas, the country as a whole does not rely heavily on tourism as a source of revenue.
Homosexuality is illegal in Trinidad and Tobago. However homosexuals have not been actively targeted by the laws. In 2007 a highly vocal campaign opposed Elton John’s entry into the country. This was led by the local Anglican Church archdeacon. But the Tobago House of Assembly rejected the call to bar Elton John from entry, and the concert went ahead as planned in May 2007. Nevertheless, Trinidad is considered a ‘relatively safe’ destination for gay travelers.
