Hate in the gayborhood

Posted on 16 Nov 2016 at 4:32pm

CORRECTION: The flyer was left on a car on Saturday night, not Tuesday. New information suggests that these threats are targeting a specific individual, However, the nature of the threats would indicate others are also at risk.

The flyer below was allegedly left on the windshield of a car outside BJ’s NXS! gay nightclub on Fitzhugh Avenue Tuesday night.

The flyer includes a photo of the fence to which Matthew Shepherd was tied and left to die outside Laramie, Wyoming in 1998 in one of the most infamous anti-gay hate crimes in recent years. Boxed words printed next to that photo say, “Where you belong !!!!” with an arrow pointing to the photo.

There is a second photo of a tribute at BJ’s to the victims of the June 12 massacre at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, next to the boxed words “Kill all fags and anyone who helped them at PULSE.” There is also a badly cropped photo of two young white women in a car, a a copy of the BJ’s logo, along with the boxed words “YOU ARE NEXT!!!” and, at the bottom, a separate boxed area including the threat, “NIGGER LOVERS AND ILLEGAL WETBACKS MUST DIE FUCKING FAGGOT YOU ARE THE NEXT PULSE AND FAGGOT TO DIE BY BEATING !!”

Dallas Voice has left a message asking the person on whose car the flyer was reportedly found to contact us. We have not yet verified the authenticity of the flyer, but felt that the threat contained herein is serious enough to warrant posting here as a warning to our readers to be careful and stay alert.

We will be passing this flyer along to Dallas police.
