Religious leaders from five nations have called on governments across the Caribbean to repeal their anti-gay laws.
In an open letter to Caribbean governments, Christian clergy from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Jamaica also appealed to them to support the human rights and health of their local LGBT populations. The release of the letter coincided with the electronic publication of a book documenting last October’s “Intimate Conviction” conference in Jamaica, at which more than 60 religious leaders analyzed the origins and devastating effects of anti-gay laws in former British colonies.
