VICTIMS OF HOMOPHOBIC ABUSE TOLD TO REPORT IT
Green activist targeted by yob
A GREEN Party activist has told how he was subjected to homophobic abuse – and urged victims to come forward.
Malachai O’hara said he was verbally assaulted on his way to work on Wednesday morning. The former election candidate said he was targeted at the junction of Peter’s Hill and North Street in North Belfast.
He added: “A young fella aged 18 to 20 in the back seat of a car rolled down his window to tell me I had dropped something.
“A woman, I presume his mother, rolled down the window to also inform me I had dropped something. The man then shouted I had dropped my ‘Gay Card’.
“As the lights changed and they drove off, he wound the window down to threaten to ‘knock my b***s in’.”
