PROJECT LAUNCHED TO TACKLE HOMOPHOBIC VIOLENCE

Quote:
The Caribbean Anti-Violence Project (CAVP), an initiative of the University of the West Indies (UWI), is to launch a web-based documentation project to record incidents of harassment and violence based on homophobia, gender and HIV-related stigma.

The launch comes on the heels of increasing incidents of homophobia, prejudice and violence in the region.

...

I encourage all Caribbean people who may have experienced such regrettable incidents to report them online at www.CaribbeanAVP.org, said Gareth Williams, a victim of police brutality at the mob attack on February 14 at a pharmacy in Half-Way-Tree, Jamaica.
