A young man’s birthday celebration was suddenly cut short when he was attacked by a group of thugs while trying to find the location of the local gay bar.
The 22 year old man told cops he asked a patron at the Missoula Club for directions ro a nearby gay bar when he was lured outside where he was beaten by three other patrons at the nightclub. The man, who is being identified as “Joseph,” said one of the men asked him to join them outside for a cigarette. It was then that the man started calling him a faggot before attacking him. Then two other men joined in.
Missoulian reports that an event is scheduled to take place on August 31st called “Proposition Gay Downtown Missoula Pub Crawl.” According to an invite posted on Facebook, “We are encouraging gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual people (and their straight friends) to show up en masse at any and all Missoula downtown bars on Friday, August 31, to raise awareness while having a rockin’ good time!” the publication cites the group’s Facebook post as saying.
