Barbadian transgender Kim Watson is getting support from some members of the local lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

Watson, 53, made the news recently after winning her case against deportation from the United States by claiming that if she returned to Barbados she would likely be tortured or worse.

“I feel like if America had sent me back, they were signing off on a death sentence,” she said in an interview.

Watson came under fire on social media for the unflattering image she painted of Barbados. However, some members of the LGBT community, including several local activists, said they understood where she was coming from.
