If you want to know what it means to live in constant fear, try to say in Jamaica that you are gay

Jamaica is a place where LGBT people are often attacked with a machete, and no less frequently beaten. In 2010 year, for example, 16-year-old boy hacked to death in his own house for some suspicion of having sex with a man. People often cut or set on fire for suspicion of homosexuality and homosexuals during the funeral procession to attack people, armed with stones and bottles.

The government supports it: for having sex with a person of your gender in Jamaica you could face up to ten years in prison … that if you’re lucky. Unless you’re lucky, the local police would extort money from you, torture you, or beat to a pulp, and then you will be thrown into prison. Jamaica local LGBT is the hell on earth.
