This is Caleb Orozco, the only LGBTQ activist in his country showing me the back of his home in Belize City, Belize.
We are currently working on a film about him. In Belize it is illegal to be gay according to section 53 of the criminal code. Caleb Orozco, activist and director/founder of UniBAM (United Belize Advocacy Movement) has been fighting to change the laws and bring equality to Belize, despite numerous personal sacrifices and risking his personal safety. In this film we will interview Caleb, his lawyer, his opponents, and his supporters. The film aspires to tell his story, and the struggles of the LGBTQ* community in Belize.

My visit to get screened for cancer:
- Nurse: "Sorry your boyfriend couldn't wait for you in the waiting room, it makes women feel uncomfortable."
- Me: "He wasn't my boyfriend and I don't see how it would make them uncomfortable, but that's my opinion. He was here for moral support. I understood, and so does he."
- Nurse: "So he's your...."
- Me: "Friend."
- Nurse: (During the question asking) "How many sexual partners have you had?"
- Me: "11."
- Nurse: "How old were you when you first became sexually active?"
- Me: "....Loaded question but....14, I guess."
- Nurse: "You're sexually active, then."
- Me: "Well....I guess...but..."
- Nurse: "How many times have you been pregnant?"
- Me: "Uh. 0."
- Nurse: "O...kayy...-Checks 'condoms' as my preferred use of birth control-"
- Me: "I don't use condoms. Or take birth control."
- Nurse: "Then how do you avoid getting pregnant?"
- Me: "With homosexuality."
- Me: "I fuck girls."
