Pridefest in Jamaica This Weekend
I've gotten to know one of my fellow bloggers down there who is the creative force behind Gay Jamaica Watch and GLBTQ Jamaica. If you're interested in keeping up with what's going on in the TBLG community there, check it out.
Contrary to what you've heard, the Jamaican BTLG community is putting up a spirited fight for their human rights in their homeland and are building community.
As part of those efforts, this weekend Pridefest will take place in Kingston on September 11
The Pridefest will include a Party with a Twist Expo running from 2-6 PM local time, a fashion show that starts at 6 PM and then the party gets started until 12 PM
