While Jamaica is a popular vacation destination for American travelers, they are not as welcoming to the LGBTI community as they are to tourists unfortunately. Jamaican law refers to “buggery” as a crime punishable with 10 years behind bars in some cases. In fact, in Montego Bay in 2013 a teenager was caught cross-dressing at a street party and was violently beaten and murdered for it. Sadly, this type of reaction is not unique to Jamaica, or even to countries where homosexuality is illegal. They just have a law still to openly back those against it in their country.
