Yes sirree! Here it comes now. In spite of the protest and all the activities from activities it seems three gay couples will be tying the knot in Negril, Westmoreland.
We need not remind you all that same sex marriage is illegal in Jamaica so this is an act of blatant defiance.
The wedding is slated to take place tomorrow at a hotel in Negril. Commenting on it Michael James who in spite of claiming to be straight is still an activist for gay rights told the Star that the move is an act of defiance of the part of the gay couples, which will send the message to homophobic Jamaicans that “same-sex marriages will become a norm in Jamaica, so they need to get with the programme and get tolerant”.
James said the couples are Jamaicans living overseas who feel they should tie the knot in their home country. They comprise two female couples and a male couple.
“For security reasons, they have made it a combined effort to do one big ceremony here at the hotel. They will fly in with their guests and pastors, and have pictures and videos taken to capture the celebration,” James further told the paper.
“More couples will be coming to Montego Bay, Ochi, you name it. The hotels are well aware of what is happening, but they don’t care because it’s all about the money, so I advise Jamaicans to stop fighting against it,” James said.
