Based on a report by The Star men have started complaining that they are being ‘targeted’ and harassed by some members of the homosexual community while walking in the New Kingston business district.
One man, Alphanso Roberts said he has been, ‘verbally harassed’ by men who dress like women.
He said, “I was walking on the road in the New Kingston area one night and then mi hear smady a call after me, yuh know like how a man woulda call after a woman. When mi look is a bag a man who dress up like woman a call to me.”
Taxi operator Leroy Allen also said he has witnessed this display numerous times.
“More than once mi affi tell them fi stop dat when dem inna mi vehicle.”
When asked what he meant by ‘stop that’ he elaborated, “when them inna mi vehicle a call after man, it nuh right and it nuh look good.”
A cross-dresser that goes by the name ‘Puncy’ said these types of approaches only happen when men are in what he calls their ‘zone.’
He said “we are in our zone and if we see someone (a man) walking we are gonna holler at them.”
Puncy is not only a cross dresser but a sex worker as well in the New Kingston area.
Meanwhile, another cross-dresser, who goes by the name ‘Pearl’,stated that he does not make it his duty to go after straight men but instead said, “I do attract straight men, I just can’t keep them off me.”
The New Kingston Police have received numerous complaints from men who have been harassed by some cross-dressers in the area and pointed pointed out that most men are afraid to point out the ‘men’ who made the advances.
