[www.inewsguyana.com] – The final of three homosexuals who died as a result of a double murder and suicide on July 20, is slated to be buried later this afternoon (Monday, August 4).

Jason John, a Model and Dancer, also known as a ‘Jada’ received his final respects from friends and family at the Sandy’s Funeral Home on Chapel Street, Georgetown.

Unlike the funeral of 24 – year – old Car Sinclair, known as ‘Tyra’ this funeral was not marred by drama and commotion and was more civil and organised.

Among those present were: persons from the National School of Dance, Trans Gender United, Society Against Sexual Orientation and Discrimination and other Lesbian, Gay, Bi – Sexual and Transgenger (LGBT) members.
