February 20th was the third year of this blog's life. Thank you so much for your continued support and advice and criticisms over these three years of life for this publication. As you may know it started out as a JFLAG, Jamaica Forum for Lesbians Allsexuals and Gays blog when I was a part of the family but apparently the revolution was too fast for them probably so a name change was in order and then came GLBTQ Jamaica of course redone to reflect my views alongside theirs with my sister blogs GLBTQJA on Wordpress and the sometimes controversial Gay Jamaica Watch. A new Xrated all male blog was added recently to diversify the offerings on this kind of platform. I still intend to launch a full site soon provided the right funds can be put together as I do this activity alone for now with networking assistance from other persons on the ground.
Nothing much has changed in terms of goals except the new posts and features added that judging by your feedback have been enjoying. Donations presently are accepted via Paypal where buttons are placed at points on this and the Gay Jamaica Watch's blog as well. If you wish to send donations otherwise please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone - 1-876-813-4942 or CLICK HERE
