Brave gay boy confronts violent homphobe and gets beaten
The victim of a violent homophobic attack in Scotland is showing that love is still awfully powerful, even in the face of ignorance and hate.

Blair Wilson, 21, was walking home from his mom’s house in the town of Neilston when a stranger took it upon himself to call him a “faggot.”

Instead of walking away, which is the safe choice especially if you’re alone, Blair confronted the meddlesome homophobe. Words quickly turned to violence when the man physically lashed out at Blair, leaving his nose cut, blood running down his face and shirt.

“I thought, clearly, this person doesn’t realise how close Neilston is and I just wanted to post something so that, when he sobered up, he might see how much love and support I have.

I knew, as soon as it happened, that I could either keep quiet and feel embarrassed about it or I could shame him over Facebook. As soon as I posted it, even though my nose was still bleeding, I didn’t care.”
