I am pleased to announce there was a full house at last night’s forum against anti-GBLTQ violence! Not only were a number of our elected officials and representatives from the Police Department present, but a great many concerned citizens from as far-flung locales as Park Slope! Some of these individuals had very powerful tales to tell, as you will see. In any case 9and without further ado) follows is the footage I shot. NOTE: I will be adding more later today so check back!
