Nicholas Snow welcomes LGBTQI Activist Maurice Tomlinson, who hails from Montego Bay, to preview the October 25th, 2015 Montego Bay Pride, and to dicuss the cultural and political context in which the event is taking place.  Visit the Montego Bay Pride Facebook Page.

The recent historic Jamaica Pride that took place in Kingston was an unqualified success. With public endorsements from the mayor of Kingston and the Minister of Justice, it is clear that the forward march for the full liberation of Jamaican LGBTI people is unstoppable.  However, some persons from Montego Bay and western Jamaica were not able to participate in Pride Jamaica because of financial and other constraints. Many members of Jamaica’s LGBTI community are still only able to get entry-level positions because of SOGI stigma and discrimination. Therefore, they had limited time off and resources to travel to and stay in Kingston.  A team of dedicated and motivated local Jamaicans are therefore organizing the first-ever Montego Bay Pride on Oct. 25! The team is led by internationally recognized LGBTI activist, Maurice Tomlinson, who also hails for Montego Bay.
