Bishop hits out at homosexuals

Published: November 15, 2011

Baptist Bishop Simeon Hall yesterday urged homosexuals to seek help to turn away from their "non-productive and deadly practice," but a popular member of the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender community in The Bahamas denied his claim that many men are absent from families because of their sexual preferences.

Hall released the statement after a Nassau Guardian article revealed that the prevalenceof HIV/AIDS in The Bahamas among men who have sex with me (MSM) is near 14 percent, which is nearly double the eight percent documented in 2008 by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS),

Director of the National HIV/AIDS Programme Dr. Perry Gomez pointed out recently that that percentage increase is a result of better reporting, data collection methods and better access to the MSM comunity.
