I Love This "Boy"

Just saw the film "Boy" at Robinsons Galleria and I must say, it's one of those boys I would never forget. It's a fine mixture of poetry, passion and personal awakenings about an adolescent boy who falls in love with a stripper. The film is megged by Aureus Solito, the acclaimed director of Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros and Tuli.

Catch this "Boy" this week!

A 23-year old man was detained by Jamaicam police on Oct 4 in connection with the murder of John Terry.

Terry was found brutally murdered in his MoBay (Montego Bay) area home in Jamaica on Sep 9. He was naked, had been beaten about the head and strangled to death. A note left with Terry's body read, "This is what will happen to all gays." it was signed by "Gay-Man."

Still, police in Jamaica say the murder was not likely a homophobic attack but rather a lovers' dispute over money.

This is only the latest in a string of horrendous homophobic attacks in Jamaica.
