Gay Man's House Torched After He is Murdered in Jamaica: VIDEO


A gay man was murdered in Jamaica late last month.

Jamaican LGBT News writes:

Watch as a resident and news reporters try to allude to, but not confirm the sexuality of Dean Moriah, whose body was found with stab wounds, house set on fire, and car stolen on August 28. Dean, at the time of his death was an entertainment coordinator at Bogue Village, Montego bay, Jamaica. He was also an a well known, openly gay man.

Watch the report, AFTER THE JUMP...

Moriah's death follows two recent incidents of anti-LGBT violence in Jamaica, one in which two men had to flee after an auto accident when residents accused them of being gay. In another incident, five men had to barricade themselves inside a home after an anti-gay mob gathered outside.

  1. Most of the Caribbean islands are terrible places for LGBTs. To have to live on one of them is unfathomable as to how one keeps one's sanity, let alone one's life. Thanks be to God, voodoo and/or juju for the islanders hatred of "the gays". STAY AWAY FROM JAMAICA AND THE OTHER CARIBBEAN ISLANDS IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE.

  2. Disgusting. For the memory of Mr. Moriah, I hope there is justice.

  3. Again, and again I say, why in Heaven's name would anyone want to vacation on this crime ridden, drug infested, homophobic island.

    The high crime rate, rampant violence, and anti-gay rhetoric is prime example of what happens when the Xtianists take over.

    Instead of worrying about the extreme poverty and drug abuse that are rotting this nation, the Jamaican politicians are focusing on religious bigotry against gays.

    The gays have become scapegoats that allow the Jamaica government to hide their own crimes. Much like the Xtianists in the United States use anti-gay speech to fleece money from their sheeple.

  6. It's time raise awareness of this issue like we've done with the situation in Russia. We should urge people to not vacation there, skip cruise ships that stop there, and stop buying Jamaican products such as coffee and well, whatever else they make there.

    I think the popularity of reggae and elevation of Bob Marley to icon status coupled with the Jamaican veneration of weed, leads a lot of folks to think it's a country of laid-back stoners instead of the extremely violent and intolerant bigots that are the majority there.

  7. What does Portia Simpson Miller & her big yap have to say about this? Does it not occur to reporters to pursue that line of questioning when covering the ongoing hate crimes against LGBTs in Jamaica, & indeed, elsewhere in the Caribbean?

  8. I thought this was reported here within the last couple of weeks already.

  9. LGBT people and their families and friends stay out of that hate filled country. Don't buy Jamaican goods of any kind. Strangle them economically. Force their political and business leaders to do something about the actions of their hateful populous! It is a small nation and boycotts can hurt them economically. It will force them to change or be an even poorer nation than it is now.

  10. Jamaicans are animals.

  11. Unlike some others here, I am looking for the person that I can not live without. We all can live with certain people and things. But there are very few people or things we can NOT live without.
