Describing itself as Jamaica’s oldest LGBT group, the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexual and Gays (J-Flag) has established a crowdfunding page as it seeks funds to rebuild its office building known as ‘Rainbow House’, that was gutted by fire on December 30, last year. The fire of unknown origin caused extensive damage to the building, located in St Andrew, as well as its contents. According to J-FLAG, the estimated loss from the fire is US$50,000 to US$60,000.
