I got news this morning that a dear friend of mine was beaten up outside our local gay bar this weekend. He is gay. That kind of violence is something that is so foreign to me. I've lived in a world where, if you're displeased you use your words. Generally, I consider Idaho a very conservative place, but at least well-mannered. And Pocatello has received recognition for being safe and a cheap place to live. Hate crimes... bizarre.
Friend did not hit on these gentlemen. Friend did not act in any overtly sexual or offensive way. Friend walked out of a gay bar and into three men that had a problem with that. Physical confrontation over walking out of a gay bar. So hateful.
We're having lunch to talk about it here in a little bit. I told him I'd host because I AM STICKING TO MY MENU. Therefore he has to stick to my menu too - heh.
Big Fat Gay Love,
