WARNING!!


The man who bashed Lance Reyna, well known gay transman, during the week of Pride is out of jail and on the streets!

During the vicious attack which sent Lance to the hospital, his attacker called Lance a “queer” and used a knife in the attack. At the time, Lance was wearing pride gear. After the brutal attack was finished, the attacker took Lance’s wallet.

Since the attacker won’t fess up to knowing that Lance was part of the GLBT community, he won’t be held accountable under State or Federal hate crime statutes and the case will be prosecuted as a simple assault. As it stands now, he’s out of jail and may get off with a slap on the wrist and some community service because this is his, “first time offence” (according to the DA’s office)!
