Gay UK Singer: ’I Was the Victim of Homophobia During Pride’
An out pop singer from the United Kingdom took to Twitter over the weekend and said he was a victim of homophobia during London’s LGBT Pride on Saturday, Gay Star News reports.
Will Young wrote on the social media site and told his 191,000 followers that he was targeted because he’s gay.
"Would you believe on the day of Gay Pride I have been the victim of homophobia. I am SO mad. #pride2014," the 35-year-old tweeted.
According to Pink Star News, he said that he and his boyfriend were "asked to stop hugging" while in a spa because "it was offending another ’conservative’ visitor."
"I am looking forward to what the hotel have to say about this cos I am still seething. I actually can’t believe it," he said.
A number of Young’s followers responded to the singer’s tweet, giving support.
