When asked-Should Gays Travel to Jamaica. I always say NO !

This is why--I always say NO !

Do not travel to Jamaica if you are of the LBGT Community.

New story about an old story. Homosexuality is not tolerated by the Jamaican culture. Many times here and in person I've been asked by gay couples if they should travel to Jamaica and I've always discouraged it, even if they "planned" to be discreet. If I were homosexual I would not want to spend my vacation dollars in a hostile environment, which would cross both Jamaica and the Bahamas off my list. There are plenty of other places to go where the culture is more tolerant.
