Who was Josiah ‘Jonty’ Robinson?

Josiah “Jonty” Robinson was a young LGBTQ model and singer from Grenada. He openly acknowledged as gay and a member of the LGBTQ Community.

LGBT is an acronym for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.” The initialism, as well as some of its frequently used variations, has been in use since the 1990s and serves as a catch-all phrase for specific sexualities and gender identities. The term LGBT is an adaptation of LGB, which started to take the place of the term homosexual (or gay and lesbian) concerning the larger LGBT population in the middle to late 1980s. When transgender persons are not included, the shorter word LGB is still used in place of LGBT.

His Facebook page states that he attends T.A. Marryshow Community College and resides in Sandy Lane, Saint James, Barbados.
