Categories: Caribbean, Jamaica, Human Rights, Law, LGBTQ+

Francis Wade notes the arrival of the Lawyers Christian Fellowship and the National Church Alliance, the first organised anti-gay groups in Jamaica [1], and quotes a Jamaica Observer article which states that the groups have proposed that the phrase “free and democratic society” be replaced in the country's Charter of Rights with “and in keeping with the aspirations and norms of the Jamaican people”.
