All the stories, the only stories that make the newspaper, make headline news in Jamaica about lesbian women are the dead ones. Only those who end up dead. The ones who get raped, you never hear anything about. You hear about it at a gay party that you attend, or a gay friend that you know says, you know this happened to this person. I know it’s on the hush hush. They’ve not been reported and obviously people don’t try to report things because, for the very same reasons that we experienced, people don’t bother because it’s a complete and total waste of time.
But not only that, we have heard of cases where gay men have been killed, they have been beaten and there is no justice. There’s no investigation. Everything dies with their abuse. Everything dies with them. That’s true.
