Jamaica and Homosexuals have been at odds for many years and while many have learnt to tolerate gays, there are others who just won’t have it. Today, Vice News presents a documentary focusing on the experiences of the LGBT community in the Kingston area. Titled “Jamaica’s Gully Queens“, we see members of the community using the gullies as a place of refuge, and looking out for each despite the harshness they face outside of it.
