In the first week of June, the killings of two gay men and a transgendered woman in Detroit and a gay man outside Atlanta have highlighted an alarming uptick in attacks against LGBTQ people and hate crimes in general, activists say. We know that the discrimination of LGBT folks is at an all time high. On Thursday, year-old Devon Robinson was charged in connection with the May 25th fatal shooting of three people in a home in east Detroit: two gay men Alunte Davis, 21, Timothy Blancher, 20, and a transgender woman, Paris Cameron, Georgia Equality's Graham noted that visibility for the LGBTQ community is especially high this month, particularly because the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots against a police raid of an iconic gay bar is on June Despite the progress against homophobia on many fronts, "amidst all the good, there tends to be a backlash," Graham said.

AP — A hate crime charge has been added to attempted murder in the case of a gay Louisiana teenager who was attacked by another teen he met on a dating app last year. Police initially said the evidence did not support a hate crime in the attack on Holden White, who spent days in a coma and nearly a month in the hospital and still does not have full use of both hands. White said the other teen wrapped a cord around his neck so tightly he lost consciousness and that he woke up in a bathtub where the assailant repeatedly slashed his wrists.
A gay teen from Louisiana is calling for the justice system to strike his attacker with hate crime charges. The year-old, who was then 18, had been talking with Chance Seneca, 19, for about a month. As White told the Acadiana Advocate , there was no red flag in their month-long conversations. Seneca then insisted on picking White up from his apartment.
