‘I’m living in fear on a day-to-day basis’

SOUNDBITES — “I’m living in fear on a day-to-day basis. In the community where my ex-lover was killed, people will say to me when I’m passing on the street, they will make remarks like ‘boom-boom-boom’ or ‘batty boy fi dead.’ I don’t feel free walking on the streets.” —Jamaican resident Andrew, on living in fear on the island because of his sexuality [AP]
