3 words I've never heard put together
A "gay" ...... "Jamaican" ....... "American."
Ok, this is a first, coming on the heels of my last blog on my "ugly reaction."
In today's Sunday Gleaner I heard for the first time about Thomas Glave: a gay, Jamaican American.
That for me is a first. The only person who I know of that openly said he was a gay Jamaican was Brian Williamson, who was murdered a couple of years ago a few months after he publicly made that statement. I only heard about this after the fact.
So, Glave is the only living person I know who has openly stated that he is a gay Jamaican (albeit living in America.)
Incidentally, Glave is a professor of literature at SUNY Binghamton, and has a book published (available on Amazon.com) called Words to Our Now: Imagination and Dissent.
I think I'll be doing some reading as the topic of his work has to do with being a gay Jamaican, and the hatred that he experiences as a result of his sexual orientation.
Sounds like something I'll be reading.
