L’une des victimes répond qu’elle est gendarme à Nancy (Meurthe-et-Moselle) et prévient les adolescentes que leur comportement est un délit. Mais au lieu de se calmer la situation s’envenime. La bande de filles passe le couple à tabac et la petite amie de la gendarme essuie un coup au visage avec un objet tranchant. « Elle a été balafrée. L’estafilade commence sous l’œil gauche et finit sous l’oreille », précise une source proche de l’affaire. Les filles prennent la fuite dans le quartier.

Latina, Italy: group of boys insults and assaults two teenage lesbians

Italy

The most recent act of homophobia in our country [Italy] last week . This time it happened in Latina and the victims are two lesbian girls , minors. From what we know, on the evening of 7 March the two girls were walking in Piazza San Marco, in the city centre, and were approached by a group of boys. Without reason, they began to direct insults at the two teens based on their sexual orientation, including “shit lesbians”. However, the [verbal] offences were not enough. One of the members of the group thought of spraying the foam used during the Carnival celebrations in the eyes of the two victims.
(Translated)

E’ della settimana scorsa l’ultimo atto di omofobia nel nostro Paese. Questa volta è successo a Latina e le vittime sono due ragazze lesbiche, minorenni. Da quanto si apprende, la sera del 7 marzo le due ragazze stavano passeggiando in piazza San Marco, nel centro della città, e sono state avvicinate da un gruppo di ragazzi. Senza ragioni, hanno iniziato a rivolgere alle due coetanee delle offese di diverso tipo legate al loro orientamento sessuale, tra cui “lesbiche di m*rda“. Le offese non sono però bastate. Uno dei componenti del gruppo ha pensato bene di spruzzare negli occhi delle due vittime la schiuma utilizzata durante i festeggiamenti di Carnevale.

Chile: brutal lesbophobic attack

Carolina Torres Urbina

Carolina Torres Urbina (24) and her girlfriend Estefanía lived a very different Valentine’s Day. In the early morning of February 14, they were attacked by three individuals at the intersection of Laguna del Inca and Laguna Sur avenues, in the commune of Pudahuel. Carolina was hospitalised in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Central Post of Santiago, after receiving a beating that left her with a skull fracture and an internal haemorrhage. They were on their way home holding hands after watching a football match when they began to insult Carolina. “Maricona, they shouted at her,” say the young woman’s relatives. According to their testimonies, the attack was associated with the victim’s sexual orientation and gender expression. “My sister dresses masculine, the insults were aimed at that,” says Jennifer Torres.
