I’m originally from Jamaica, and Jamaica is very homophobic and living there as a lesbian woman you basically have to be living in double shells. The crime rate and the homophobic environment are very high. People are uneducated about respecting your space and your preferences. You have to be looking over your shoulder all the time. There is no law there, even the police, there is no protection for you and it’s all because of your preference and being the person who you are. And it’s my country but I’m not welcome there and not safe there. So you can’t be yourself and that effects every aspect of your life. You want to know that people will respect that, and that the laws are there, the policies are there. This is me, like it or not.
