McEwan et al v. Attorney General of Guyana (2018)

The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) ruled that a law in Guyana, which makes it a criminal offence for a man or a woman to appear in a public place while dressed in clothing of the opposite sex for an “improper purpose”, is unconstitutional. The law, Section 153(1)(xlvii) of the Summary Jurisdiction (Offences) Act, is to be struck from the laws of Guyana. The Court held that the law violated fundamental rights to equality, non-discrimination and freedom of expression and was unconstitutionally vague.
