LGBT persons face unchecked violence in Jamaica says Rights Group

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons are targets of unchecked violence and discrimination in Jamaica, according to Human Rights Watch. In a report dubbed “Not Safe ay Home”, which was released today, the group said LGBT citizens in Jamaica are frequently forced from their communities by neighbours, including their own families. Human Rights Watch also stated that some health professionals stigmatise LGBT persons by casting judgement on their sexual orientation when they seek care. The human rights group has called on the Jamaican government to remove the buggery-law. According to the group, its report was a result of five weeks of research conducted in Jamaica last year, where it stated that interviews were done with various persons including 71 from the LGBT community, 44 of whom reported that they were victims of some sort of violence due to their sexuality or gender identity.
