Man Stabbed By Man He Was Having Sex With In Florida Cemetery: VIDEO

Cemetery

This is not your True Blood recap, but it may sound like it.

After meeting in a Tallahassee, Florida cemetery at 11:00 at night for a sexual rendezvous, a man was stabbed five times by his would-be lover. WXTL reports that the encounter, which took place on June 24, took a bad turn as soon as the assailant mentioned the victim’s ex-boyfriend: 

The victim said it was during "sexual activity" that Johnson mentioned the victim's ex-boyfriend and then started stabbing him.

Court records show that Johnson told the victim "no one would have to worry" about him anymore.

Law enforcement says the victim was able to kick Johnson out of the car and lock the doors. However, Johnson attempted to get back into the car by gaining access through a slightly open window, the victim told police.

The victim was able to escape and drive off, crashing through the cemetery's fence at the intersection of 4th Ave. and Martin Luther King Blvd.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of his wounds. According to the police report, there were a total of five stab wound; three to chest and one in each arm.

The victim required surgery for his wounds as he suffered internal injuries as a result of the stabbing, mainly a punctured lung and lacerated liver. The assailant, 18-year-old Devante L. Johnson, was later arrested for attempted murder.

Gay Man Attacked with Glass Bottle in Oslo After Being Asked if He is Gay

Brookes-bekkestrom

Keith Brooks-Bekkestrom was attacked in a park in Oslo, Norway by two men who approached him on a bench and asked if he was gay. Brooks-Bekkestrom sais he was confused about why they asked him but replied 'yes' when they did.

CutThe two men then proceeded to attack him and when he fought back to defend himself a third man approached and struck him in the head with a bottle. Another man who was in the park with his family came to help and the attackers fled, according to media reports.

The man helped Brooks-Bekkestrom wash his wounds in a fountain and call police.

Said Brooks-Bekkestrom to Norwegian media: "They had to sew a deep wound, so I have a pain in my head. They had to sew over my eye, and I have a wound on his arm. I do not feel safe here anymore, it will take some time."

Wrote Brooks-Bekkestrom yesterday on Facebook: "I'm very happy to report that today's hearing at the Oslo Courthouse went incredibly smoothly. The three men who attacked me were not present in the courtroom. I was required to describe the incident to a prosecutor, defense lawyers and judges, with help of an interpreter. We will see how the case continues, but I have to show my deep appreciation to Alexander Aronsen,Martin Phillip Fjellanger, Sebastian Forbes, and the American embassy representative (c/o Ashley Rainey Donahey) who were with me the entire hearing, along with Eirik Willyson, who came as well. And of course, all of you in spirit. It meant a great deal to me that you were there, and that I was not alone."

Brooks-Bekkestrom also wrote a note to Towleroad: "A lot of people have perceptions about Norway and Scandinavia being safe for LGBT people, but this illustrates that homophobia exists everywhere and that there is still much work to be done around the world."

Screenshot 2014-07-18 14.27.14Mia Henderson, the transgender sister of LA Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock, was found dead in Baltimore earlier this week.

Bullock expressed the grief of having lost his sibling, whom he remembered as his brother Kevin via Twitter not long after news of the homicide broke.

Henderson was last seen with an unidentified man, suspected to be her killer, heading into an alleyway known for prostitution, according to the Baltimore Sun. Henderson’s death is the second to have been classified as a murder in Baltimore this summer since June.

Skin Care Expert Tries To Hire White Supremacists To Murder Gay Business Rival: VIDEO

Dawn Melody DaLuise

Beauty is serious business, and for one skin care expert in North Hollywood, CA it's deadly serious

Dawn Melody DaLuise's business, Skin Refinery, has several locations all around Hollywood, but when Gabriel Suarez moved in with his Sweet Cheeks salon a few doors down from DaLuise's West Hollywood location, she began seeking out contract killers.

According to one man who was investigated, DaLuise was even trying to contact white supremacists, hoping that Suarez's "double minority" status of being a gay Mexican would be enough to entice them to take the job. When she was busted, DaLuise tried to make it appear as though Suarez had been stalking her online, a story that fell apart when witnesses told investigators that DaLuise had asked them to lie about the cyberstalking.

DaLuise will be arraigned on July 7th.

Vigil For Florida Trans Woman Found Burned to Death

0621_NCLO__Shancez,Yaz'min_t607A vigil was held yesterday for 31-year-old Yaz’min Shancez, a transgender woman living in Fort Myers, Florida. Despite being burnt and hidden behind a dumpster, Shancez’s death was not initially being investigated as a hate crime according to Fort Myers Police Lt. Jay Rodriguez, but have since ruled the death a homicide.

“If you really think about it, a hate crime is killing someone for a specific reason, being black, Hispanic, gay.” Said Rodriguez. “We’re investigating as we would any other homicide.”

Shancez’s death is yet another example of disproportionately high homicide rates borne by trans women of color.

Shancez’s family has erected a memorial to her at the site where her remains were found, and is currently trying to crowdsource funds to give her the funeral she deserves.
