Targeted for being gay...
Organized by: Jesus Martinez
First I'd like to start off by saying we are not the type of people to ask for help unless it's our last resource . My partner and I have been together over a year and moved in together several months ago. Right before thanksgiving we were victims of a hate crime our tires on both of our cars were slashed and the word "FAGGOT" was Keyed into the sides of our cars. Then again just before Christmas our cars were vandalized again with the slashing of tires. We have made police reports and they said it's just a "possible" hate crime. We wanted to move but we do not have the means to do so. Our landlord said there's nothing he could really do but have the police do a surveillance. Nothing happened to our cars in January so we felt relieved. Maybe it was just coincidental. Well here we are again someone has vandalized our cars once again by pouring what smells like bleach into both our gas tanks, Two days before my partners top surgery. And yet again the police think it's just a coincidence and said it's just a "possible" hate crime when clearly we are being targeted. I am here asking for donations to get us out of this neighborhood and fix our cars. A little background on us I work for a non profit organization taking care of people with developmental disabilities and my partner works for a behavioral health company. On the weekends we perform in drag to help raise money for charities and At home we keep to ourselves.
