Lesbian Couple Alleges Hate Crime Following Assault In Long Beach

A lesbian couple in Long Beach, California, has claimed that an attack last Saturday evening was a hate crime, reports Long Beach Post.

Jamie Jarvis and Meg Taylor said they were attacked by three African-American females while returning home from a party near Broadway and Esperanza Avenue.

According to Marlene Arrona of the Long Beach Police Department, the altercation occurred following the suspects honking at the victims and one of the victims giving the suspects a “hand gesture” in response.

Jarvis said:

“Meg and I were jumped coming home from a birthday party. We just got out of the ER. This should have never happened and I thought my girl was dead. I’m not ok with this. Please help by keeping your eyes out. The girl in the SUV had two toddlers with her. Is this how we want our youth raised? Please spread the word.”

According to Arrona, one of the victims was transported to the hospital, where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The suspects have not been located and it is not clear whether this is being investigated as a hate crime or not.

In a comment on Long Beach Post’s Facebook report - which appears to since have been removed - Jarvis addressed other comments which suggested that the attack may not have been a hate crime:

“[Taylor] flipped them off. But who stops and pulls their car over to start yelling, “Dumb white bitch, dyke bitch, go tell your girl to f*&k a dick….then attacks people...THIS IS A HATE CRIME. FULL OF HATE. THESE LADIES HAD NO BOUNDARIES.”

Brazil No-Hope Presidential Candidate Goes On Televised Homophobic Rant

Levy Fidelix

The penultimate televised debate before next weekend’s presidential election was overshadowed by a homophobic rant by fringe candidate Levy Fidelix, reports The Guardian.

Fidelix, a conservative and former journalist with no hope of winning, was entitled to almost as much screentime as the leading candidates.

On the Sunday debate, he said that gay people “need psychological care” and are better kept “well away from” other people.  He also suggested that Brazil’s population would be reduced by half if homosexuality were encouraged because “the excretory system” does not function as a means of reproduction.

Although his comments went unremarked upon by the three main candidates – including former environment minister Marina Silva, who earlier this month reversed her support for same-sex marriage – his insults and the other candidates' failure to address them quickly dominated post-debate discussion on social networks. 

According to the most recent polls, incumbent Dlima Rousseff will win the first round on October 5th and then face a run-off with Silva on October 26th.

Police in New York have arrested and charged two men and a teenage boy with menacing, third-degree hate crime and assault in the first degree after they chased and shot at a gay man in Brooklyn on Saturday night, reports NY Daily News.

The victim, who was dressed as a woman at the time of the attack, was walking with a friend near M.J. Beauty Salon on the corner of Putnam Ave. and Broadway in Bushwick at about 7 a.m. when he was attacked by Cody Sigue, 22, Matthew Smith, 21, and Tavon Johnson, 17.

According to police, the attackers screamed profanities and anti-gay slurs at the pair. The attackers then opened fire and shot the victim in the rear.

Johnson and Sigue were charged with menacing and third-degree hate crime, while Smith was charged with assault in the first degree. Johnson and Sigue each have one prior arrest while Smith has "an extensive arrest history," with 14 arrests including robbery.

Local resident Daquan Ruddock said:

“[It] shows how gay people can’t walk around in the street without someone saying something or doing something towards them. It’s sad.”

Iowa High School Coach Describes 'The Power Of Coming Out' To Homophobic Friend

Writing on OutSports, Evan Risk, a junior high school track & cross-country coach in rural Iowa, has explained what happened when he came out to his homophobic friends.

RiskRisk explains how at a basketball game, a friend told him about a “great” idea to change the word “beer” to “queers” in a team chant.

The friend suggested that "In heaven there is no beer that's why we drink it here, and when we're gone from here our friends will be drinking all the beer” could be changed to “In heaven there are no queers, that's why we kill them here, and when we're gone from here our friends will be killing all the queers.”

Risk continues:

“I thought about what I should do for the next few days. Then we went to another basketball game and he said to me during the game, ‘Yeah in my town people say we never had any gay people but that's not true, we killed them all before they were eight.’

“After the victory that night, he sang the killing queers song. Just as before, I had no idea what to do. I didn't say or do anything at the time.

“Regardless of the outcome I knew I had to come out to him. I didn't want to hear the homophobic comments anymore.”

Risk says that when he finally came out, his friend replied:

"I'm really glad you told me. And I'm sorry about what I said earlier.  I'm really glad I know that about you. We're definitely still friends."

Describing how coming out had a positive effect on his friend, Risk says:

“After I came out to him in December we remained friends and on the last game of the season his roommate came with us the final game in March.  

“[The roommate] was talking about something the other team was doing and said ‘That's so FUCKING GAY.’

“I put my head down, not sure exactly what to say.

“My other friend quickly chimed in - ‘Don't say that. Don't say that word.’

"That is the power of coming out."

Harlem Pastor Threatens 'Homos' With Hateful Church Sign: 'Jesus Fired And Brim-Stoned Them'

ManningSign

Pastor James David Manning of ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem is back with another offensive, homophobic, and frightening sign. Manning previously warned African-American women that President Obama was responsible for unleashing white gay men on their husbands, and he whole-heartedly believes in the use of the word "faggot." Under a towering cross stating "Jesus is Lord," Manning has once again opted to spout hateful rhetoric and lies.

JdmThe New Civil Rights Movement reports:

"When the homos bullied the poor and needy in Sodom like they do in Harlem, Jesus fire and brim-stoned them," it reads. 

Manning would have you believe that's a quote from the Bible.

It's not.

Manning also believes that Michael Sam may marry a 9-year-old boy and that Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are closeted homosexuals. It seems like someone may be losing touch with reality...

Kerr added that Loews Coronado Bay Resort, several bands and restaurants and a wedding planner have volunteered their services.
