A police report was filed by a young lesbian, in late May 2018 in St. Louis after she was attacked outside the Grey Fox Pub by 3 individuals after a disagreement inside the bar.
According to the victim, she was attending a drag show at a bar she used to frequent, when a trans identified female approached her and told her she was not welcome. The victim then responded “why, because I know you’re female?”
The bartender then asked the victim to leave. According to the victim and her girlfriend, she was attacked by 3 individuals who were waiting just outside the door for her leave. She was beaten and sustained injuries, but is recovering at this time. The three individuals then took to social media to brag about beating the victim and were seemingly able to be identified through their social media accounts, some of which have since closed.
Social media posts by the attackers reveal that they knew the victim was a lesbian and referred to her several times as a “TERF”, a derogatory term used against anyone that questions gender identity.
One of the alleged attackers was apparently fired, with New American Funding releasing a statement condemning the attack.
An investigation is now pending. There has been no reporting by mainstream LGBT media on this incident.
