We mentioned earlier this month that J-Flag, Jamaica Forum of Lesbian, All-Sexuals, and Gays, released a PSA to be aired on Jamaican television that called for unconditional love for the island’s gay and lesbian citizens. Unfortunately, the commercial may not get to spread its message of love and tolerance as Television Jamaica refuses to air the ad. The main reason: opposition from influential pastors. J-Flag’s executive director told local news outlets: “”Since we are not directly or indirectly promoting anything that is illegal, love is not illegal, we don’t see why we shouldn’t be able to go forward, so we are going to continue our discussion and hope that we can quickly come to some solution to have it aired.”
