DC Couple Attacked and Called Anti-Gay Slurs and Mentioned Monkeypox
I had a feeling this would soon start to happen to gay men. A Washington DC gay couple was targeted, assaulted, and they allegedly used anti-gay slurs and mentioned Monkeypox. I say “allegedly” because they haven’t found the suspects yet and it’s all still under investigation.
In all their attempts to NOT stigmatize gay men all over again as they did with AIDS, the media and the CDC have done it all over again. Gay men are now directly associated with Monkeypox.
Police said the suspects approached the victims and made derogatory comments “based on their sexual orientation.” They then assaulted the victims and fled the scene, police said.
Here’s more. The police are still investigating this and deciding on whether or not it was a hate crime.
A Minor League Pitcher Named Solomon Bates Just Came Out As Gay
Here’s another coming-out story that I love. I never get tired of reading them.
Minor league pitcher Solomon Bates publicly came out as gay in an Instagram post on Tuesday, the same week that he was released by the Giants.
Here’s more. Apparently, he is only the second in the minor leagues to come out as gay. David Densen was the first in 2015. Come on minor league players, we know there are more of you. Come out and live your true lives. You won’t regret it. I have never met a single gay man who regretted coming out as gay.
