Jamaica’s Gays March 100 Strong

Some 100 folks in Jamaica yesterday participated in the Walk for Tolerance, from Howard Cooke Park to the beach, in what’s being dubbed the country’s first gay pride. The Reverend Elder Nancy L. Wilson, the openly lesbian presiding bishop of the International Movement of Metropolitan Community Churches, led the march, and even the police were there to make sure things stayed orderly. So that was quite nice, and a whole lot better than what’s happening in Serbia, so there’s that.

      OMG I didn’t think that would be legal. But then again it is being led by a lesbian. It’s ridiculous that many countries ban same sex marriages for men but not women in many countries. That is so blatantly sexist yet it is never addressed. I am aware that male homosexuals spread AIDS more than females but it is still unfair discrimination. I think it would be like stopping Black gays from having sex but allowing White gays to have sex because blacks spread AIDS faster. But any progress in this majorly homophobic country is very good and gives a slight bit of hope.
