‘The most homophobic place on earth’. This is how TIME magazine described the Caribbean island Jamaica in 2006, after several incidents of excessive violence and discrimination against LGBT people. How much has changed since then? What kind of discrimination and violence does the LGBT community face? And what role does music play in spreading homophobic slurs? These are some of the topics we will discuss with our Jamaican guests, brave activists who will join us both live and over Skype.

We hope for an interesting evening filled with discussion, film and music. This edition of the Dissident is organised in close collaboration with Shelter City, an initiative of Justice and Peace.
