CONNEK JA

CONNEK TRIP PACKAGES

On April 9-13, 2020 CONNEK invites you to see a “queer, safe, beautiful, [and] LIT” Jamaica through a variety of activities, from hiking to nights out on the town, focusing on Jamaica’s diverse beauty. It’s the perfect vacation for foreigners and staycation for locals in Jamaica looking to connect to other queer folk and liberals in Kingston. 

Our second annual trip includes workshops and family dinners to foster connection with locals, a fundamental pillar of CONNEK’s mission. The trip leads to our CONNEK bashment, a night of celebration and dancing between locals and CONNEKTEES (locals and foreigners who purchase a CONNEK package). Working exclusively with queer talent, allies of the community and local vendors across the board CONNEK is committed to building up the queer Kingston community thriving outside of the “resort” industry pigeon holding a lot of Jamaica’s tourism.
