Another Gay Murdered in N.Y., We’ve Seen it Before

by Accidental Bear

To common of a story. The detail have not emerged but my guess is that, this is a case of younger straight thug (dabbling with sexual identity) is down on his luck and using older gay man to meet some financial needs. Older gay man is overly helpful and goes against better judgment in hopes to get some straight guy sex. Things don’t go as planned for him, straight guy flips out and kills him. Drugs and booze are usually involved. That is my guess.

  1. I have such mixed feeling about stories like these.
    I kinda feel like a Mutant in the X-Men Universe every time someone breaks a story about another Queer killed.

    Part of me cringes when I see the person’s sexuality as a big part of the lead story-
    I’m glad our community highlights these tragic cases but would it have been a story if it was a crazed woman killing a man?

    We need the awareness but the stories always assume it was a closet case gone Milk on someone’s ass.

    I just don’t know

  2. There must be something in the equation that makes the older man being Gay important. These headlines make me cringe too!
