The Words of a Victim of Disrimination, JUNE 2008

“In the first weeks of January two thousand and eight (2008) I was neglected by my family because they felt that I am not living in there eyes as the Christian believe and they strongly disagree that I cannot stay there anymore so immediately I have to dismiss the premises of my home and community,

It all started when my dad took away my phone and started on began to be inquisitive and saw things which contain my personal life and begin to act blusterous in a manner which he say that I should leave his house while I was in the back room he use a broom to hit me back on say that I should leave is house (Com out a mi hous an go live wit u dutty batty bwoy them, u nasty old reptile) and push me out of the house and through my thing out of the house and said that I should not come back and I must leave now, then went and started showing members of my family and community members my phone, to show that he has a prove to say that I am gay.

The members of the Church that I use to attend have all forsaken me and turn there backs as they don’t want any homosexual in there church as the bible does not support homosexuality.

The members of community are saying that they don’t want me in the community as I am a batty man and they don’t want no batty man in the community, and all batty boy fi dead.

Sence then I am in need of a place to live and I am also out of a Job.”

Admin – one of our new cases that has been documented, a young man, 20 years old living in Western Jamaica, now finds himself staying with friends because his family wants nothing to do with him. Another typical case of a young gay man left to fend for himself.
