Jamaica and Alternative Lifestyles

I don't just think its Jamaica that has the prob - its a bigish issue where I live. I don't care live and let live but a lot of people don't have that attitude

Not to be negative, but I'd also be MORE concerned in a private villa in a more secluded location than in a larger resort area. In a large resort, you can blend and not be noticed. But, in a smaller area, the staff is bound to take notice and could cause problems. The resort I was married at was in a very small town outside of Negril. The staff was aware of EVERYTHING that went on... and I'm pretty sure the entire community of Little Bay knew about stuff that was going on during my wedding.

Somone I know in JA said that it's not illegal to be homosexual but it is illegal to be caught in the act so to speak. The general attitude towards it is not favorable but they shouldn't worry to the point of not going, just being aware of where they are should help.

Obviously, my concern is for their safety, but if it was truly illegal, then I would be worried that someone could "report" it, and they could end up charged with a crime in a foreign country. That would be an absolute nightmare.
Having just returned from my Jamaica scouting trip, it seemed like the police there are all dressed like SWAT team members, and the locals appear somewhat afraid of them. So . . . I really don't wanna mess with them!
