A Jamaican court is considering more arguments in a landmark case where Jamaican TV stations are refusing to broadcast a pro-gay advert.

Maurice Tomlinson, a gay Jamaican attorney, brought a suit against TVJ, CVM and the state-run Public Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica (PBCJ) for their refusal to broadcast a ‘Love and Respect’ advert promoting tolerance toward homosexuals.

All three TV stations refused to air Tomlinson’s ad, even after he offered to cover the cost of prime time rates.
