Youth attacked again

I wrote the other day about the Colour Pink Foundation, and how the needs amongst this group of young transgender women is urgent. They have been attacked again. Here is the incident report:

Around 1:00am Monday August 15, 2016, eight homeless GMT (Gay Men, Men who have sex with Men and Transgender Women) persons were attacked by members of the public. The attack included stones and bottles being thrown at them causing bodily harm, but gasoline was thrown on their personal items and lit on fire and also individuals were attacked while attempting to run for their lives.

Refuge was sought at the New Kingston Police Post by three individuals while the eight others made their way to the water front in Downtown Kingston where they sought comfort in an abandoned building until day break.

Colour Pink Foundation who is the foremost organization in Jamaica advocating for the rights of the Homeless and Sofa Surfing GMT and LGBT population has set up a Go Fund Me account to assist these individuals with getting clothes and their medications which were destroyed along with other sanitary and hygiene materials.
