This past Sunday, Larry Lennox-Choate and Daniel Lennox-Choate, the first gay men to be married at West Point Military Academy, were attacked by a homophobe while shopping at a bodega in SoHo.
After shouting gay slurs, the approximately 40-year-old man punched Daniel, 30, in the face before his husband came to his aid.
As reported by the New York Daily News, a post on Larry’s Facebook reads, “He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is.”
Larry also had this to say, “We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves, but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.”
No arrests have been made at this time, although the NYPD hate crimes division is still investigating.
