Well for me their are more gays in jamaica than any one would want to admit to, most of the gays are in the lotto scam and are gays and then they have the homo thugs body guarding them, and u see the same homo thugs have baby mother who see them driving big trucks and fancis cars and them tell them a the big women upto car them have when In fact is the same batty boy that them a hate and a bun out car them driving. So all those tht are condemning gays, go and take a look at the big truck and car u man a drive home in and a tell u say a the big women car, because most of the time it's only the batty man car them a drive,

I live in Trinidad where it's all good to be gay , I'm openly gay there and have no problems.Because the people are so open minded the economy is booming and money and success and oil is everywhere.Quite unlike poor ass, illiterate monkey ass Jamaica.Maybe u guys like living like cows on that religious shit high.
Money talks and bullshit walks.
Many police in Trinidad are my best friends and they will sort out anyone who dares offend big strong and powerful gay me. Learn some lessons poor ass and illiterate Jamaica , join the world in progress not sit in the backwater of ignorance.
By the way , I'm on my third degree dumb asses how would the developed world see me?
Don't hate Jamaicans like myself because we hate gays like you.

Keep gay sex in the bedroom. Under lock and key. With the lights off. And completely silent.

But then again, is America any safer? 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!

USUALLY? Yeah, let's go somewhere where, chances are, we might not be attacked for being gay. There's a selling point...
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.
When attacks happen on LGBT visitors to Jamaica, they are USUALLY 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?

Not all Gays are persecuted in Jamaica.
Politicians, University lecturers, comedians, artsist,actors, foreign diplomats, pastors both male and female are loved and revered by many. It's mostly the poor of the homosexual community as in most communities who are discriminated against.

I must ask if Jamaica is so much against Gays and Lesbians why do so many of them like Former PM PJ Patterson, and Famous Singer Diana King practice this kind of lifestyle? As A Jamaican descendant I see lots of people from Jamaica get into this Lifestyle so I don't get why, but does that make Jamaican system a Hypocrite?
