?"Walk for Tolerance" Calls for End to Bigotry in Jamaica

New York, USA – April 8, 2010. Yesterday in Montego Bay, over a hundred people carrying signs with messages from “My Bedroom My Business” to “Sex Work is My Choice” called for tolerance. Sexual minorities, sex workers and people with AIDS in Jamaica held a public event together for the first time. AIDS-Free World applauds the bravery of those who participated in the Walk for Tolerance.

We are delighted at this important statement of solidarity from Jamaica AIDS Support For Life (JASL), the Sex Workers Association of Jamaica (SWAJ), and other local and international groups who walked proudly on the streets of Montego Bay. We endorse their demands, which include repealing the country’s repressive sodomy laws.
