Jamaica: Fighting for Gay Rights

Written by scott on March 5th, 2013

javed-jeghai-jamaicaDot429 has a great interview with Jamaican gay activist Javed Jaghai. You can read the whole thing here. An excerpt:

We Are Jamaicans is a participatory video campaign that features LGBT Jamaicans and allies telling their stories. Fear of stigma and ostracism prevents LGBT people from coming out, and it compels allies to downplay their acceptance. I am very proud to be one of the voices in this campaign, because if I am not willing to break the silence, then I’m complicit in my marginalization.
