Gay couple beaten in park urge MPs to moderate language on gay marriage
Charlotte PhilbyA gay couple who were beaten by a gang of youths in a suspected homphobic robbery last weekend – leaving one with head injuries – have urged politicians to moderate their language when debating same-sex marriage.
Christopher Bryant, editor of gay and lesbian online magazine Polari, was on his way home from his birthday celebrations with partner Damon Truluck when they were confronted by a group of six men on Saturday night.
The two men were beaten and told to “stay down… faggot” as they walked through Betts Park in Bromley, south London, Mr Bryant told The Independent yesterday. “We were about a third of the way across the park, we saw a bunch of guys under a street lamp near one of the exits about 100 feet away from us. They started to follow us.
