Mob attack funeral of allegedly gay cross-dressers

An angry mob reportedly armed with machetes, knives, bottles and stones attacked a group of allegedly homosexual cross-dressers at a funeral service in Mandeville, Jamaica, according to local gay rights activists, Radio Jamaica reports. The Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All Sexuals and Gays (JFLAG) is expressing outrage about this latest demonstration of anti-gay violence, which reportedly occurred on Sunday at the funeral of businessman Kirk Wayne Lester.

As Jamaica has been labelled 'the most homophobic place on earth' by human rights activists, I guess an attack on a funeral service shouldn't seem surprising. Disgusting and horrifying, but sadly, not surprising... as that poisonous 'religious' cult in Kansas, USA has also discovered, mourners are a particularly vulnerable target.
