3:35pm ET - On September 11th in downtown Philadelphia’s City Center, a gay couple was ruthlessly attacked by a mob of what was described as ‘well dressed’ assailants. Following the assaults in which anti-gay slurs were shouted and which sent both victims to the hospital the identities of some of the attackers has been revealed as a result of social media detective work by twitter and facebook users. Joining us today to discuss this attack and explain the work being done in the Pennsylvania state legislator to get LGBT people included in the states hate-crime laws is Victor Fiorillo, the Senior Reporter and A&E Editor at Philadelphia Magazine who has been closely covering this case.
