Gay Men and Drag Performers Attacked In Separate Incidents In Austin, Texas Have People Fearing It’s An Anti-LGBT Crime Wave

AUSTINJAN 4 — In two separate incidents, three gay men were brutally attacked outside nightclubs in Austin over the weekend.

Leaving the popular downtown club Barbarella on ‘Tuesgayz,’ Robert Foster and a friend, both drag performers were attacked.

Foster explained their attacker punched him in the head; knock out a tooth, and then running him over in a car. Resulting in a broken leg.

“What comes to mind is that this is like a pattern. This needs to be stopped,” Foster told KTBC-TV. “If it is a pattern we need better security around the bars and the clubs people need to know just because it hasn’t happened to you yet, it can.”

In a separate incident, across Austin, Oscar Zavaleta was assaulted by two men outside Bout Time II, an LGBT bar on Austin’s north side.

Zavaleta suffered a broken nose and a black eye.
