Transgender Violence

Don, passed this along to me and indeed I had seen it from my Trans Ohio connections but have taken until now to post it here on Cyrsti's Condo:


BRAVO is Issuing the Following Alert for the Safety of the
LGBTQI Community of Central Ohio

BRAVO has recently received multiple reports of anti-LGBTQI pick-
up related bias crimes. The incidents have occurred while meeting
people using the website Adam4Adam and potentially other dating
service websites/apps (i.e. Grindr, Scruff, Growlr, etc.). At this
point it appears that assailant(s) are contacting individuals
online and upon meeting, are robbing them and/or burglarizing
their home. BRAVO has good reason to believe that these attacks
are anti-LGBTQI motivated.

If you have been the victim of, or are aware of, similar assaults
please contact BRAVO (614-294-7867) or the Columbus Police
Department Sexual Abuse Squad (614-645-4701).

For further information BRAVO, can be reached at 614-294-7867 or
866-86-BRAVO. All reports to BRAVO are confidential and may be
made anonymously.

Thanks Don!  I think the important point to be made here is that even though this alert is for Central Ohio, the message is for everyone-everywhere.

The threat of violence has been and will be a real threat for anyone in our community...lets be careful out there!
