A very good friend of mine was attacked by four straight men, beaten called a faggot and is now in ICU. Here is hoping he is okay and pulls through but the main reason why I posted this (and its my first topic so kinda nervous of how guys will respond) is to ask a few questions: Have you ever faced this kind of brutality based on your sexual orientation? How does one cope with the possibilities that just because you are a openly gay man you may be attacked? Also if this is happened to you would like to hear how you handled it afterwords. I know our world is slightly better then it used to be, being gay is a little bit more accepted then it was before, but there is always that underlying fear of such an event like this can transpire even in a public setting.
