Transgender rapper, allegedly beaten in a Toronto park, says attackers threatened to kill him (Toronto, Canada, 16 July 2018)


A quiet afternoon stroll in a west-end park earlier this month turned violent for a Toronto rapper, who says he was attacked by two men and a woman for being transgender. 

Saye Skye was playing with his cat in the park on July 16 when he asked a group drinking near Bloor Street and Ossington Avenue to stop littering. 

"They started swearing at me and calling me names, threatening me that they would kill me," he told CBC Toronto.
