The first gay pride event in the Bahamas was cut short after no locals showed up and the organizer received death threats.
The event started on Thursday (28 August) and was meant to run until Tuesday.
Organizer Victor Rollins told the Nassau Guardian that only 11 people other than the organizers attended the event, all of whom were foreigners. No one from the local gay community turned up, even the people who were to be honored at the event.
‘Everyone is scared,’ Rollins said. ‘No Bahamian from the LGBT community showed up.’
