”It should be noted that the staff of the Stonewall are some bad ass, take no shit hombres. My kind of queers. I would very much like to buy them a drink…. Until now, I’ve never had the experience of being brutally attacked. I was somewhat surprised that I never felt fear, before, during, or after the experience…. Violence for its own sake is never OK. I’ve read a few of the comments posted on one of the news articles online, and I’m disappointed by both gay and straight commenters who propose violence. We must not give in to this form of irrational thinking.”
”I’m not going to sugarcoat what happened…. It was a bar fight, but I swear on my life it’s not about Gays or race or any of that. We don’t care about any of that stuff in this family.”
