JAMAICA’S DARKEST SECRET IS OUT!
Being Gay in Jamaica for Gay young men like DWAYNE JONES is a crime that was punishable by mob death. Dwayne Jones aka Gully Queen, was a 17 year old cross-dresser who was attacked by a mob, stabbed, shot and his body dumped in the bushes at a street dance in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Monday July 22, 2013. To date no one has been arrested for his murder.
Dwayne was vibrant, creative and in the prime of his teenage years when his life was cut short because of intolerance and hatred of Gay men. A type of intolerance that is far too common in Jamaica.
Every year, at least 30-35 cases of brutality against Gays are reported. Many of these cases are homicide cases that go unsolved because the Justice system does not care enough to find and prosecute the killers of innocent men who are 'believed' to be Gay. These killings have been on the rise.
It is time for this injustice towards innocent humans come to an end. The Government led by the Prime Minister, Portia Simpson cannot continue to ignore these hate crimes. LET THEM KNOW THE SECRET IS OUT!
WE URGE YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION TO SEND A STRONG MESSAGE TO THE JAMAICAN GOVERNMENT THAT THEY MUST ACT NOW TO: 1. FIND AND PROSECUTE THE MURDERERS OF DWAYNE JONES 2. REPEAL THE BUGGERY LAWS IN JAMAICA THAT MAKE HOMOSEXUAL ACTS BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR HOMES A CRIME.
PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO MAKE A CHANGE! #JusticeForDwayne
