Turning Tricks To Eat: Jamaica's Lost Boys. A Tawdry Story of Survival. South Florida Tune in Sunday, February 14, Valentine's Day, on the CW-WSFL TV

Kingston, Jamaica

This week on 18° Degrees North we delve into the issue of Jamaica’s lost boys – doing anything they can do to survive, even putting their sexuality on the line. It's a classic case of how when the government fails to protect its children, the wrong set of people are only too happy to fill in the gaps.

Plus we investigate child sexual abuse in Trinidad & Tobago. Why is the government failing to implement child protection laws? We speak to a victim fighting for justice. 

And now that Britain has legalized gay marriage, we explore the new frontier for gay rights in the Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory, where homosexuality was already made legal in 2001 by the British despite some local opposition.

South Florida, tune in to the weekly investigative TV Magazine 18 Degrees North with Zahra Burton, this Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 10am EST, on South Florida's, the CW, WSFL-TV.  18° Degrees North is sponsored by Grace Foods.

About 18° Degrees North

18° Degrees North is a TV news magazine whose main purpose is to uncover stories related to the Caribbean that have gone unreported or been underreported for too long. If it’s political corruption or a celebration of success, this show promises to be bold, fair and in-depth, all while maintaining the highest level of journalistic standards. 18° Degrees North will incite outrage, discomfort, marvel and praise but at its core, it will inform. Our hope is that more information can lead to better decisions, and better decisions can lead to greater prosperity for the Caribbean region and its Diaspora in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

18° Degrees North takes its inspiration from CBS’ 60 Minutes and ABC’s Nightline. It is one half hour long, with three video segments each, exploring topics as varied as politics, science, business, health, sports and culture. 18° Degrees North is a production of Global Reporters for the Caribbean.
