"Nichole" is a 29-year-old lesbian from Jamaica who, in an extremely rare move, has been spared deportation by a U.S. immigration judge following two drug convictions because of the extremely hostile climate for gay people in Jamaica. She has to report back to authorities in 3 months regarding her status. While lesbian acts are not technically illegal under Jamaica's rather specific anti-sodomy laws, there is enough homophobic violence to go around for both lesbians and gay men.
