  1. Jamaica is violently homophobic, so I hope this brave man is not murdered before the case goes to court, although I am doubtful of a humane outcome as Jamaica has not evolved enough yet to consider others civil/human rights.

  2. He`s brave!good luck to him,i think he`ll need it in that country.

  3. Javed Jaghai – Great Britain salutes you and wishes you every success!

    I wore my self-made pride T-shirt again after work today in Monahans, Texas. I’m always aware it might rile some bigot, but it might help someone not feel so alone, and it does help my self-esteem, too. But my bravery doesn’t match that of this Jamaican man; THAT takes a whole lot of courage.

    I have Jamaican origins and write about homophobia in Commonwealth nations in my non-fiction book, God’s Other Children – A London Memoir (Amazon). The Peter Tatchell Foundation is also concerned with these issues and has held related meetings. The British Government must put pressure on the Jamaicas of the world, until outdated sodomy laws are overturned; silence is collusion. I will try to reach Javed Jaghai to explore how I might help. He’ll need all the support he can get.
