I have to disagree with you here (didn't think that would ever happen :).  
My experience in Haiti is that it is largely *very* homophobic.  I have yet 
to meet a Haitian (other than one gay man I met who is ostracized by most of 
society) that was not very open and vehement about their disaproval of 
homosexuality.  It's very much hidden and looked down on in Haiti.  At least 
in my experience.
