‘Policy of exclusion’ …a gay man speaks out

"Many people in Trinidad and Tobago are less vocal about their feelings for murderers, child rapists and drug pushers, than they are about their dislike for gay persons," says Jody Seymour (not his real name), a 24-year-old gay man from St James.

Seymour says the fact that consensual sex between two gay adults is still a criminal matter in Trinidad and Tobago gives a young man growing up gay a sense of how his society feels about him.
