Transgender Women Beaten and Hospitalized After Leaving Brooklyn Gay Bar (Brooklyn, New York, USA, 10 June 2017)


Two transgender women and a third unidentified friend were attacked after leaving a Brooklyn gay bar.  London Jade and Jasmine Infiniti left the Happyfun Hideaway near Bushwick Ave., at around 1 a.m. Saturday 10 June 2017. Staff at a nearby liquor store refused service to the women because they were intoxicated. They were then confronted outside the store by three men and a woman screaming derogatory slurs.

Police said the group called them, “transformers,” “f—-ts” and told them to “get off our block.”

One knife-wielding attacker slashed London in the leg. Jasmine suffered a fractured jaw and contusion. Both were hospitalized for their injuries.
