“When you use f—– and a few other choice words that are not appropriate for all ages, you know it’s directed to you,” Bravo said. “It’s not just a normal fight.”
The attack left Bravo with four broken bones in his face, a fractured ankle and he has not regained full vision in his right eye yet.
Free2be Safe Anti-Violence Project set up a special fund for Bravo and other LGBTQ survivors of violent crimes according to James Robinson, Free2Be executive director.
Robison said police took Bravo’s statement while he still had a head injury.
“(Bravo) was in shock,” Robinson said. “He didn’t even remember talking to the second officer in the hospital.”
