You can definitely make a strong case for it: Today has been proclaimed 'Gay Eradication Day' by residents of the McGregor Gully community in East Kingston .

If my beautiful country Jamaica is a Hell Hole.....Why do so many white/black americans live there, because Jamaica is paradise compare to dirty, dirty, dirty America. So many race of people travel back and forth to Jamaica all the time, because they love Jamaica....Jamaica is Beautiful, Fun, and warm.
Dont nobody want to live in a place they think is a hell hole or a piece of shit....So go educate yourself....betta yet look up jamaica and see the amount of people from different races that goes there, before you start spitting nonsense.
And F.Y.I America is the most homophobic country in the world...They legalized gay marriages like what's wrong with them...If that was Jamaica, the whole government would get killed...So stop talking FOOLISHNESS!
Well if America is so dirty, why do so many Jamaicans move there to live? First you warn that the whole government would get killed for legalizing gay marriages, and then you call those who legalize it "homophobic?" You seem to have mirror logic.

Jamaica was once a gay Mecca, back in the 50s and 60's. What happened? New world missionaries from the United States - Jehovah, Seven Day, Church of God, Petacostal. Preaching words of hatred into a largely illiterate and eventually very politicized and violent poulus.

Well...if America is so tolerant, as I'm sure you are going to try to tell us, in comparison to Jamaica, for example, in respect to the LGBT community, Vivek, then why is it that there are growing numbers of homophobic attacks against the LGBT community in America, and there is a growing amount of fear instilled in the LGBT communities, especially where same-sex marriages are not legalized in certain states?

But then again, America HAS to safer for the LGBT community in America, right? Let's see what is being said about some places in America, about the intolerance of LGBT persons...take it away, New York!

Better that those that want to talk about the intolerance that is seen in Jamaica in regards to LGBT persons, better check THEIR OWN BACKYARD FIRST!

In perspective, if tolerance is measured by the level of freedom to be who you are regardless of people's opinion and beliefs America is more tolerant.

I believe that a majority of the world doesn't give a sh!t what another person does in private. One of the things that a portion of the population in America was that it got a little risqué in public and that was the public image but;: only for that segment of the population that really didn't know that LGBT forks are everywhere.

I'm not Gay but I know folks that are...Look at the Catholic Church and it's secrets, ever hear of stories from inmates locked up in prison?

So, in America is mostly politics and a portion of the population with certain strong beliefs. Just as it is in Jamaica. Belief's here are very strong. You gotta love a country with strong belief's whether you agree with the issue or not..

Jamaica does suck. Ugly people, terrible landscape, lousy food and housing. Crime, the list is endless. No wonder tourism has been pratically non-existent there for years.

It is funny how you said '...WE'RE the MOST hetero MEN...' when you referred to White men, like you HAD to justify the reason you were caught with a score of your hillbilly friends, all liquored up, clad only in your tighty-whities, while you all are sweaty and greased up, wrestling with each other in the park, WM Inferiority...I suppose you find DOGPILING on your practically naked White school buddy as HETEROSEXUAL conduct, but I assure you, that no matter how many times you try to tell me that White guys LIKE YOURSELF are straight, I am going to deem White guys, that enjoy rolling around in the muddy hay with their redneck buddies in nothing but their filthy ginches as HOMOSEXUALS, with hidden violent homosexual fantasies, just waiting to be acted upon when the time is right.

Maybe YOU think that because you are the giver, that you are not gay, or that if you only insert your prick into your friend's ear, mouth, or just the tip of your manhood into your friend's butt, that THAT does not make you a homosexual. Newsflash, WM Inferiority...it DOES make you a homo in MY books, and I KNOW that you and your friends are closet case buttfuckers, that likely go out on homophobic lynch parades in America, just so that you can effectively say that because you all have beaten up a poor, innocent gay man, that the hugging and kissing and all that other crap you gay redneck cowboys do after you all have had a few drinks inside of you guys is absolved. You redneck cowboys are some of the sickest gay people I have ever seen on the planet! I can GUARANTEE that right now, you are sitting down in front of your friend's big screen TV, with a dozen of your friends, all decked out in your wife-beaters, sandwiched on the couch, with a Pilsner in one hand, and your free hand giving your buddy on the right a bone-stroking, while you all are watching TNA Wrestling...bunch of circle-jerking homosexuals is what I can say about you and your gay ass bigoted White friends, WM Inferiority!

Beat it, loser...I doubt that 5% of Black men are into gay activities like that, but it is almost guaranteed that 80% of White hillbillies like yourself have done some gay shit, while not counting it as gay...suppose that is why you don't think that teabagging your friend's testicles and polishing his nuts with your dirty mouth is gay, as you will likely explain that you were simply flossing your rotten teeth, right WM Idiocy? LMFAO!

You have NEVER been to Jamaica, so you don't know that Jamaica is a lush paradise, that surely is better than Ohio...why do you think LeBron James left Ohio? LOL!

The only reason you would say that Jamaica has ugly people, is because you prefer your 'prey' to be White, bald and bi-curious...you won't find many people like that in Jamaica, so looks like you are going to have to stroke your boner, and dogpile onto the back of your White friend's ass with your erect prick, won't you WM Inferiority? LOL! Maybe your gay White friend will let you slide your dick up and down the crack of his sweaty ass for 5 minutes, before you explode in your pants from dry fucking him this time around, right? Yet you LIKE it when they struggle, don't you? That's how your gay, bigoted White friends like it also, huh? Ha ha ha! They LIKE it when YOU struggle...do you gasp and scream for them also?

Tourism in Jamaica has been increasing every year for decades, and Jamaica has been the number 1 destination in the Caribbean for at least 13 years straight, so I don't know what source you are relying on, WM Idiot...

As for Usain Bolt, he was with a White WOMAN...I know, I know...you don't KNOW what a WOMAN looks like, as you are so used to bald-headed bigoted White friends of yours, that regardless of gender, you are always fighting to get into their 'back door'! ROFL! Basically, WM Inferiority, the only way YOU could know if Usain Bolt has indeed given up White women for fat, ugly, bigoted, gay White men like yourself, is if you bent over to get it from Usain yourself...IN YOUR DREAMS, HOMO!

But wait, JamaicanBarbie...let this idiot spend $650,000 USD on a house, through an elevated mortgage, made of wood, that at most, only cost $30,000 to make, because he was unable to take the initiative to buy the lot, get the building materials, and build his own house. That's why bigoted White yokels like WM Inferiority don't own anything, and end up losing everything they have through repossessions and foreclosures...and after that, they will blame their laziness on illegal Mexican immigrants and foreign workers like yourself, that work your asses off in order to get money in America to acquire the building materials you need in order to build your retirement homes back in your home countries!

Without immigrants, America would be the poorest country IN THE WORLD, with many of these lazy White bigots starving to death!

Nothing locally will change until there is an impact on the travel bucks received by visitors. The jamaican authorities have to change the laws(and enforce those laws) in order to win the trust of visitors.
Right...just remember what you said in your above post about going somewhere where you might not be attacked for being gay, okay cpeter1313!

Also remember, that when attacks happen on LGBT visitors to Jamaica, that they can, and USUALLY, are committed by the LGBT locals in Jamaica, that you LGBT visitors claim to care about, but really do nothing for, while ignoring their transgressions (the bad group of LGBT locals in Jamaica, that is, as not ALL LGBT Jamaicans are ruthless, violent, boisterous thieves)! Let's reference a source that you have relied on in one of your past comments, in order to confirm what I, and others, that ACTUALLY KNOW what is happening in Jamaica, have been telling your ignorant ass from the start!!!...

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/JFLAG-hit...

Now...what's your excuse for the small group of LGBT Jamaican criminals that are rowdy, violent and thieving, cpeter1313? Not even J-FLAG condones or defends their behaviour...so why do you???

If you REALLY were one to follow up on the plight of LGBT Jamaicans in Jamaica (like you claim that you are able to follow up on Santeria followers in Jamaica...LOL!), then you would know about the obvious monetary issues that J-FLAG continually talks about where it comes to them not really being able to assist LGBT Jamaicans, and rather than blaming the actions that are carried out by LGBT Jamaicans (on MOST occasions of violence against other LGBT Jamaicans) on heterosexual Jamaicans, cpeter1313, you would find a way to HELP J-FLAG ensure a better future for LGBT Jamaicans in Jamaica, by organizing a worldwide fundraiser for J-FLAG, and bringing about awareness about J-FLAG to potential foreign donors, so that J-FLAG could actually make a difference for many of the displaced and destitute LGBT Jamaicans!

Stop with the scapegoating, cpeter1313, get off your lazy Indiana ass, and actually DO SOMETHING for the LGBT people you CLAIM to care about in other parts of the world, that you feel are in a less fortunate position than you are! I'm sure that a yearly contribution of $100 from just YOURSELF would make a SIGNIFICANT difference in helping J-FLAG perform their mission in Jamaica for the LGBT Jamaicans that you claim to care about...and just think how much more of a difference could be made if EVERY critic of Jamaica, in reference to the plight of LGBT Jamaicans are concerned, also donated $100 a year to J-FLAG to help disadvantaged LGBT Jamaicans in Jamaica, rather than bitching and scapegoating, cpeter1313? The problem that you all are whining about would not exist, because you would have helped J-FLAG give LGBT Jamaicans a home to live in...and that is the fundamental starting point that ALL these disadvantaged LGBT Jamaicans NEED from hypocritical bigots like yourself, cpeter1313!

But do the predictable, and try to come back with a witty response, cpeter1313, which will have virtually no bearing or effect on me, while you completely ignore everything I have told you about helping the LGBT Jamaicans you claim to care about, just like most of you hypocritical bigots...THAT will show those LGBT Jamaicans for being born, raised and disadvantaged in Jamaica...by then, you may as well say that it was THEIR choice to be there, so to hell with them, right cpeter1313??? SMH!

By the way, cpeter1313...you DO realize that the authorities don't change the laws...it is the POLITICIANS that change laws! But you too stupid to catch mistakes like that that you make on a daily basis, huh kid?

Jamaica is one of the most beautiful places, has great food, nice accommodation, good music and many
good people. There are so many homophobic places, not only Jamaica. Like any country (not only 3rd world countries) ignorant racist people are also living there. Many people are poor and live in terrible conditions, so the crime rate is high, yes,
everything is a matter of money. THE HATE ON THIS FORUM IS SO DISGUSTING FROM ALL SITES.
Dont think you will be surrounded by fools like this in Jamaica!!
