Turning Anti-Gay Attack Into a Trans Rights PSA

A bigot was caught on video lashing out at a gay Jewish man in a Manhattan subway station on September 9, but that scary moment suddenly turned into a positive opportunity when the victim used the incident to raise awareness about the plight of transgender and gender nonconforming people of color.

In a video tweeted out by Adam Eli, who boasts nearly 5,000 followers and identifies in his Twitter profile as a community organizer, active with Voices4, and writer in the city, the homophobe is seen accusing Eli of “desecrating the name of God.”

Eli stated in the tweet that the man “was upset that I was wearing a pink kippah, carrying a purse, and had a Pride patch sewn onto my jeans.”

The yet-to-be-identified harasser pointed at Eli before walking toward him outside of the 28th Street R and W train station on Broadway in Manhattan. Eli continued to retreat as the bigot grew increasingly angry with him.

“Stay in the closet!,” the unhinged homophobe screamed. “Take your kippah off! This is not Judaism!”

1. Hopefully some good arises from that

Revelations about how ridiculously petty spats involving tribal god images have been the cause of more wars, crusades, tortures, idiotic pretentiousness about how "our group deserves more" than the heathens...
Our most timely ignorance debacle involves those who still hawk "Be fruitful and multiply" on an overpopulated planet:

Doubly ignorant when idiots like the subway bully believe they are doing humanity some good by pontificating heterosexist dogma.
