Now its one thing to disagree with one’s sexual preference, but when you kill them for it, that’s a different story.

Jamaicans are known for their Reggae music that was popularized by the late great Bob Marley, but they are also have a reputation for disliking persons of the “gay community”. This unfortunate incident is an example of how serious some people in that country hate homosexuality.  A 17 year old transvestite boy felt the brunt of their fury.

It occurred at a Street Dance party last Tuesday in in Irwin, Montego Bay.

According to Urban Islandz, the teen cross dresser named Dwayne Jones, was dancing with another male when a female recognized him and told others at the party that he was not a female.

A man at the event checked the teen and discovered he was a male and it all went downhill from there. Patrons at the dance reportedly beat, chopped and stabbed the teen to death.

Jamaican police discovered his body in some bushes at approximately 5 a.m. near the Orange Main Road.

This incident just goes to show how far some people are willing to take their hate. Jamaica is a beautiful Caribbean country with many talented and great people. But as in all countries there is a bad side. Not all Jamaicans act this way towards the gay community.
