I don’t yet have all of the details, but there was a brutal hate crimes, in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh, where a well-known drag performer was beaten by 3 drunk men outside of the Pleasure Bar on Liberty Ave. While I do not have all the details, Veruca, who was attacked says that the Pleasure Bar was helpful to her, unlike what another Pittsburgh blogger is reporting. I will try and publish more of the facts about exactly what happened, as soon as I have them.
Veruca has injuries including 2 black eyes, but is OK and will be at the rally this evening.

I’m encourageing everyone to come with at least ONE BLACK EYE
