Homophobic assault to a drag queen happened in London.Furthermore,it was the New Year Eve when everybody was in a kind of enthusiasm.Ryan Mahon shared the event on his Facebook account with astonishment.There are two men on the train.One is assaulting to drag queen verbally.And the other is defending the mentioned person as he can as.
Yes,we are accustomed to homophobic assaults everywhere but London is highly unexpected city to go through such a experience for a drag queen or transgender,whatever they identify themselves.
But Ryan Mahon says what he witnessed was a totally hate speech.He explains the story with these words:”On the way home I witnessed an absolute idiot shouting abuse at a drag queen on the tube. I then made the heinous crime of sticking up for her and this video shows what happened.” He added: “(The man) seems to think that gay people have a negative influence on his child. I think having a father who thinks it’s acceptable to publicly shame others is far more of a negative influence.”
Here is the video posted by Mahon on Facebook.
Mahon adds:”The most disappointing thing of all, however, was that on an entire tube full of witnesses to what was happening I was the only one who spoke out.I understand it was 5am on New Year’s and most people just wanted their bed or a toilet to be sick in but all I know is that if anyone was on the receiving end of such disgusting behaviour they would want somebody to stand up for them.”
‘The guy in the video … seem[s] to think that being gay is sick and wrong,” Mahon wrote. “I think that discrimination, bigotry and general nastiness is sick and wrong. He seems to think that gay people have a negative influence on his child. I think having a father who thinks it’s acceptable to publicly shame others is far more of a negative influence.”
Ryan Mahon finishes his explanations related to homophobic assaults with these:“If you have a problem with gay people…whatever you do stay out of Soho…and the Vauxhall/Stockwell area…maybe parts of Clapham too…Hampstead Heath is best avoided. Basically just do one!! Don’t be a dickhead!!Everyone has their own struggles and issues to deal with; don’t make their lives harder by being a wanker.”
This homophobic assault is being investigated by British police.
