The folks at Vice News recently put out a revealing doc called Young and Gay: Jamaica's Gully Queens. It looks at the struggle of LGBT people in Jamaica, with a particular focus on the trans community. Trans people are often so maligned that they are forced to the true fringes of society - in this case, the gutters and storm drains that line the city streets.
The drains, known as the gully, give trans people unwilling to hide their identity a fragile sense of community. While Vice were filming, they put together an unofficial video for Vybz Kartel's Beautiful Girl, featuring the Gully Queens.
Here's the original doc.
