“I am deeply disturbed by a video depicting the verbal and physical harassment of LGBT individuals on the F train as they returned home from LGBT Pride festivities. The intensity of violence and anger directed at the survivors of this assault is alarming, and for such flagrant homophobia to rear its ugly head in our City after such a wonderful, forward moving week is simply unacceptable.

“My heart goes out to the individuals who were the target of this senseless crime. I thank the witnesses for coming forward and bringing this incident to the attention of the NYPD and I urge anyone with information about this attack to contact the Crime Stoppers Hotline 1-800-577-TIPS.”
