Description

Jamaica is famous for its Caribbean beaches, relaxed attitudes. Behind that veneer is a hostile home for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people. After one recent grizzly death, where a mob that killed 16-year-old Dwayne Jones, the nation's top law enforcement officer proclaimed that Jamaica did not have a problem with intolerance. Documents, data and interviews told a much different story. Plus a strong US connection: how our country is feeling the effects of Jamaica's anti-gay climate, as gay refugees seek political asylum in the United States, and many are getting that protection.
