Introducing myself and my journal: Simply Defiant

About Me:
I am a lesbian currently residing in Jamaica. A well rounded individual who enjoys meeting and interacting with people (especially women) from around the globe. I also enjoy experiencing different cultures and hope to be able to travel the world extensively. I am the chairperson of our LBT group and the Co-Chairperson for our LGBT group here in Jamaica. I am not closeted but due to the level of homophobia which exist in my country, I have to keep my sexuality somewhat on the down low.

Well I guess that's it for now, until I have some more time to elaborate.

My Passions:
LGBT Advocacy, Politics & Women

My Challenges:
Need to be more pro-active.

My Vision for the Future:
To see a Jamaica, in fact a world so open and free of homophobia so that gay people without fear of being beaten or killed due to their sexuality.

My Areas of Expertise:
Advocacy, Peer Councilling & Administration
