Anti-Gay Attack Reported in Wichita, Kansas

Wichita Two men walking in Wichita, Kansas were attacked by a group of men yelling anti-gay slurs, the Wichita Eagle reports:

Sgt. Jesse Boomer said two cars pulled up beside the 18- and 19-year-olds walking in the 1700 block of east Douglas, near Hydraulic, around 2:30 a.m. Six men, all in their late teens or early 20s, got out of the cars, accused the two men of "being homosexuals" and attacked them, Boomer said.

The victims drove themselves to a local hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries and released.

  1. It is time for us as LGBT people to start champion gun laws in which I mean we need to arm ourselves and learn how to defend ourselves.

  5. "Accused them of being homosexual"

    Yahhhh. SOooooo?

    Unless they want to have sex, why are they wasting any of their time on the gays?


    Sorry, to the guys- but if the press gets to you, remember to frame the discussion as You vs. Neanderthals that don't represent Wichita. Christian doesn't have to mean idiot.

  7. As a gay activist who actually lives in Wichita, I just wanted to say thanks to all of the supportive people who didn't leave a negative comment.

  8. Sad. I guess "being homosexual" is a crime in Kansas. My thoughts go out to the victims and all LGBT individuals living in areas that are a more hostile environment for them.
