I sent this to the New York Blade today.
I was surprised to read Allen Roskoff's latest piece detailing a widely discredited story of a gay bashing at Corner Bistro. If Mr. Roskoff had bothered to Google the event, he'd have found out that it was a hoax, made up by Nick Haramis. Anyone who has viewed the surveillance tape, widely available on-line, will see that Nick's group clearly instigated the physical violence.
Mr. Roskoff sees homophobia everywhere he turns, regardless of it's validity.
