Obviously, there are some bigots in Williamsburg.
Meet Barie Shortell. Barie was walking down N4th last month when a group of teenagers started with some anti-gay slurs before jumping him. Ten hours of surgery and three metal plates later, Barie has up to 100,000 dollars in hospital bills.
Have any info? Call 646.610.5267 for the Hate Crime Task Force. Otherwise, go pitch in next Wednesday and drink at Blackout Bar’s fundraiser for Barie. Or you could just throw him a couple bucks here.
