The above video footage was taken in Jamaica when an angry mob attacked a gay man dressed in drag in broad daylight. The homophobic climate in Jamaica is out of control ! No one should ever be subjected to violence based on their sexual orientation.This video was extremely difficult for me to watch. Allthough this type of behavior may be more prevalent in Jamaica, it happens right here in America too.
The victim in this video could have been you or me. Let's pray for a cultural change in Jamaica . And someone said the other day there was no need for a hate crimes bill, yeah right ! We should never have to lobby congress to ensure our safety, it should be a given.
Update: Youtube has since removed the video due to it's graphic nature, but you can view it here .
