A Lesbian Couple has been gruesomely assaulted and robbed by a group of men in a homophobic attack in London, United Kingdom.
In the early hours of May 30, the women identified as Melania Geymonat and her girlfriend Chris were on a night bus in Camden, north London, when they were attacked.
Melania Geymonat took to Facebook to share a bloodied photo of herself and her girlfriend, Chris, as she narrated the attack.
Below is what she wrote:
“They started behaving like hooligans, demanding that we kissed so they could enjoy watching, calling us ‘lesbians’ and describing sexual positions.”
“The next thing I know is that Chris is in the middle of the bus fighting with them. On an impulse, I went over there only to find her face bleeding and three of them beating her up. The next thing I know is I’m being punched.”
“I got dizzy at the sight of my blood and fell back.”
“I don’t know yet if my nose is broken, and I haven’t been able to go back to work, but what upsets me the most is that VIOLENCE HAS BECOME A COMMON THING, that sometimes it’s necessary to see a woman bleeding after having been punched to feel some kind of impact.
“We have to endure verbal harassment AND CHAUVINIST, MISOGYNISTIC AND HOMOPHOBIC VIOLENCE because when you stand up for yourself s**t like this happens.”
