The Kaleidoscope Trust together with the Pulitzer Center is delighted to invite you to a screening of the film, The Abominable Crime, on Thursday, March 27 at Portcullis House in London. The award-winning documentary explores homophobia in Jamaica.

Attending will be Maurice Tomlinson, the Jamaican lawyer and activist who is at the forefront of the decriminalization campaign in the Caribbean and received the inaugural David Kato Vision and Voice Award, which celebrates the life and work of murdered Ugandan LGBT activist David Kato.

Also in attendance will be Petra Krischok, Europe representative for the Pulitzer Center, and Micah Fink, who produced and directed "The Abominable Crime." All three guests will be available for Q & A to discuss the issues raised in the film and the situation for the LGBT community in the Caribbean.

The Kaleidoscope Trust is a UK-based charity working to uphold the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people internationally. It believes that the rights of all people should be respected equally, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
