“Taboo…Yardies” The concept of the documentary is to explore the perception of Jamaica as an Island that is saturated with intolerance towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT) by giving a voice to Jamaicans who are pro or con and everywhere in between this highly controversial issue, by giving a voice to those Jamaicans who dare to stand up for human rights.
This documentary stands for support of human rights and against violence being advocated and/or perpetrated against LGBT Jamaicans. At the end of the day we hope “Taboo…Yardies” becomes a vehicle that spurs an open an honest discourse that ultimately promotes respect and tolerance for all regardless of sexual orientation.
