British Columbia: A gay man was beaten unconscious by seven homophobes who recognised him from his local grocery store.
Shane Daum, 43, was attacked while camping at Crump Recreation Site in British Columbia, Canada. “(I’m) hurt beyond all meaning,” Daum said. “It’s hard enough coming out and trying to get accepted.”
He was surrounded by the group of people, who said they knew he was gay because they had seen him shopping with his former boyfriend.
“They were calling me a faggot, a paedophile, because my then-boyfriend was a younger [guy] but he looks way younger [than he actually is],” Daum told Global News.Darrian Matassa-Fung – Global News
