In which we pause the frivolity to address a non-joking matter

by Jeremy Hooper

In doing what we do, sometimes we read a story about an anti-gay incident, and because of our constant exposure to such sentiment and residency inside of an NYC bubble, we just sorta gloss over the true weight of the attack.
