This is pretty damn awesome, lbr.
I remember the debates before the election when she addressed the buggery laws that still exist from colonial days. The outcry against her was huge and I thought she was definitely going to lose. She’s not my favorite politician, but in a country like Jamaica, what she did/said was HUGE. What she had to say about homosexuals serving on her cabinet was this:
“Our administration believes in protecting the human rights of all Jamaicans. No one should be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. Government should provide the protection, and I think that we should have a look at the buggery law….but for me, I do not support the position of the former Prime Minister because people should be appointed to positions based on their ability to manage. “
