“Dear PoPville,

Can you please share this story of an anti-gay hate crime on U Street? It reminds us DURING pride month why it’s so important to HAVE pride month. These despicable acts are still happening in our own backyard.”

From Facebook:

“UPDATE: DC Police LGBT Liaison Unit just visited us to see how we are doing. They confirmed 3 juveniles and 1 adult were arrested.

My boyfriend and I were assaulted last night [Sunday] a few blocks from Nellie’s for just talking closely on the sidewalk. It started with homophobic slurs and eventually there was a mob of 15 guys on him. I was powerless and all I could do was try to protect him. His phone is stolen, they knocked out a good part of his front tooth, and he had to get stitches for his lip. He doesn’t have insurance and we’re not sure how he’s going pay for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.”

From GoFundMe:

“My boyfriend, Braden, and I were walking from Hawthorne’s to Nellie’s on U St (in DC) last night and we stopped to talk for a few minutes. He was leaning against me and a few guys started yelling ‘faggot’ at him and started to swing at him. (more…)
