A gay Jamaican man is planning to “aggressively agitate for change” to his country’s anti-sodomy law after allegedly being kicked out of his home because of his sexual orientation.
As the Washington Blade is reporting, AIDS-Free World filed a Feb. 7 complaint with the Jamaica Supreme Court on behalf of local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights activist Javed Jaghai. The court is expected to hear Jaghai’s case on June 25, according to the report.
“It is a reminder that there is much more work to be done to achieve equality for gay Jamaicans,” Jaghai wrote on Facebook. “We can sit patiently while our humanity is denied and wait for the paradigm to shift in a generation or two, or we can aggressively agitate for change now. I choose to do the latter.”
