Trans sex workers and supporters picket police inaction in drive-by shooting probe

Members of the Guyana Trans United (GTU) took to the area outside the Brickdam police station last week picketing against the inaction of the police in delivering justice to the four trans sex workers who were victims in a drive-by shooting.

GTU was supported by members of the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) as well as other NGOs and individuals sympathetic to the plight of the sex workers.
