Maurice has been involved in HIV/AIDS and LGBTI activism in Jamaica for over 12 years.   He is an Attorney-at-Law and law lecturer with current research interests in sexual rights and HIV/AIDS advocacy. He regularly writes on gay rights in Jamaican newspapers is leading an initiative of the major Jamaican NGOs (J-FLAG, JASL and CVC) working in the area of HIV/AIDS and LGBTI rights to have the country’s anti-buggery law repealed.  

He is also seeking to have the legal prohibition against sex-work modified to allow for consensual adult sex work.  Maurice regularly attends local and international conferences where he presents on the state of Jamaica’s law and homophobia. He also conducts human rights and advocacy training sessions for Jamaican LGBTI and conceptualized Jamaica’s first ‘Walk for Tolerance’ for April 7, 2010.

He is also the first honoree of the David Kato Vision & Voice Award.

He recently wed his Canadian partner. However, this led to further threats on his life with reports saying he has been forced to flee Jamaica.
