Gay Men And Lesbians Ordered To Leave Jamaican Town On ‘Gay Eradication Day’

safezonestopsignTHE Jamaica Star has a message for homosexuals: “GAYS MUST LEAVE TODAY”.

Today has been proclaimed ‘Gay Eradication Day’ by residents of the McGregor Gully community in East Kingston. Residents say that they will be taking action as a two-week notice given to all gays and lesbians to flee the community has now expired.

It can be hard to identify who is and who is not gay. The Gully locals’ plan might be to see who flees then: a) send out a posse; b) lock the town’s gates; or c) see if there’s enough demand for an organic coffee shop.

A local explains:

“Yu nuh si seh dem waa mash up di place an gi wi bad name, me haffi protect my yute dem from dem type a influence deh,” one resident said while pointing out that they will not sit back and watch while their community falls into disrepute.

Might it be that the town’s gay watchers has been misunderstood? “GAYS MUST LEAVE TODAY” is translated from “Grays muuuse beleeeeva tu play”, a reference to local footballing legend Samson Grays who much leave the town if he is to reach his potential>

When THE STAR visited the area, a small group of residents pointed out an old community centre which is said to be the main ‘hang out’ spot for the lesbians. According to the residents the lesbians gather there almost nightly and can be seen hugging, kissing and even “touching”.

Every night you can see them hugging, kissing and touching. You just have to be lucky enough to arrive on time and watch out for the signal.

“Some yute deh bout di place whe wi hear seh gone di nex way. Wi neva actually ketch dem, but wi hear from good source who si dem out a road a par wid man weh known as ‘fish’. Dem nuh nuff still eno, but dem affi lef to, wi nuh want none a dem in ya,” another female resident added.

Another resident adds:

“Yu si dem bway deh weh a walk up an dung inna dem tight pants an ah bleach out dem face, a dem enuh, nuff a dem a f …. t an a talk bout dem a danca.”

What has been said and not said, the notice is working and one women has left:

The residents say they will not stop until their community is “gay free” and are not afraid of resorting to extreme measures.

“Mi nuh know how dem come an a gwaan like seh dem tink a farin dem deh, dem tink seh dem can come inna gangsta town wid dem wrong up behaviour an nuttin nuh happen? Dem haffi leave, anyting a anyting,” one obviously angry male said.

Er, obviously….
