GAY PROTEST AGAINST JAMAICA FIZZLES OUTSIDE UN ASSEMBLY!

GayProtest

By Janet Silvera—-,


A planned protest by gay lobbyists ‘Jamaica Anti-Homophobia Stand’, today fizzled outside the 68th United Nation General Assembly, where Jamaica’s Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller is in attendance.

The lobbyists had posted on their blog that the group would have been joined by organisations such as Queer Nation, ACT UP and the Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens in Manhattan.

But only four people turned out to protest today.

They were demonstrating against recent attacks on alleged gays and a transsexual in Jamaica.

They also want the Government to repeal anti-sodomy laws.

The lobbyists say on Saturday September 28, they will stage another protest against Simpson-Miller at the United Nations Plaza in New York.

This latest campaign follows a series of social media activities by the gay community including Jamaican born-gay activist, Maurice Tomlinson.
