About Tasheka Lavann:
"Born on the Caribbean island of Antigua and Barbuda, Tasheka Lavann left her home country over two years ago to find happiness and safety in Canada. Not one to accept defeat, Lavann turned her circumstances into an opportunity for awareness. As a former TV news anchor, she began advocating for LGBT rights in the Caribbean, while using her voice to speak out against homophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination across the world. Tasheka's work can be found on Huffington Post, Caribbean News Now, her YouTube Channel - Island Lez Talk, the Michelle Meow's Show in the US, among other platforms. Also a talented singer, Tasheka uses her performances to promote love and peace, as heard in her debut single "We Are One ". She is one of several activists in Canada who was honored as Grand Marshal during the inaugural Fierte Canada Pride last summer in Montreal. Find out more about Tasheka on tashekalavann.com."
