Dane Lewis


Dane Lewis serves as the Executive Director of Jamaica’s premier human rights organisation launched on 10 December 1998 to serve the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered persons. He joined J-FLAG as a volunteer in 1998. His love for service and advocacy was borne out of the fact that he was a victim of a homophobic attack in 1996 and felt it was time to make his contribution towards the fi ght for equality. He manages an eight-member team tasked with implementing various aspects of the LGBTI human rights work in Jamaica, including legal reform, crisis intervention, advocacy, and documentation. Lewis has headlined a participatory human rights video campaign for the rights of Jamaica’s LGBTI community entitled WE

ARE JAMAICANS, which can be found on YouTube.
