Bajans are going mad

"Darcy Dear was the victim of a recent stone-throwing incident that left two windows in the upper level of his home broken", reports The Nation. I'm probably not the right person to state whether this has been a hate crime or just vandalism, and there are Party for the Rights editors who would, more appropriately than me, tell us about the Darcy Dear story, its implications, and with a little push of readers, maybe even describe first hand what a Bajan has to face if (s)he comes out of the closet. But it was Trinidad which wanted to stop Elton John from going to the island for fear that he could inoculate homosexuality, one or two years ago. Fellow Bajans, correct my wrongs.
