Mob Kills Transgender Teen in Jamaica

Jamaican transgender teen Dwayne Jones was beaten, stabbed, run over by a car and shot to death after he attended a “straight” party as a girl. Based on reactions posted on social media, many Jamaicans believe that the 16-year-old “brought this death on himself for wearing a dress and dancing in a society that has made it abundantly clear that homosexuals are neither to be seen nor heard,” blogger Annie Paul told AP.
