Thompson denounces homophobia, hate crimes

Bill Thompson Speaks at Rally Against Homophobia and Hate Crimes in College Point

"In the wake of the terrible incident this past week in Queens, Bill Thompson joined a host of elected officials and activists in condemning homophobia and hate crimes."

"Mr. Thompson was joined by a host of elected officials, such as Congressman Anthony Weiner, Councilman John Liu, Council candidate Danny Dromm, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, and Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, as well as activists from all over New York City. During his remarks Mr. Thompson called out those who hate, telling them that New Yorkers 'will not allow' LGBT-motivated attacks to occur."

Whilst the community held the public demonstration against homophobia and hate crimes, reportedly, "Bloomberg was off campaigning with Giuliani. Telling, very telling."


  1. Thanks for publicizing the rally and Thompson's speech. What Bill Thompson did means a lot to me.

  2. It means a lot to me, too. Thompson cares enough to show up to a rally where the community is expressing concern about safety and equality. Why doesn't Bloomberg care about the community, even during its darkest moments of sadness and suffering ??
