Feb 07, 2008 Quickie Link: Gay Couple Live in Fear After Home Attacked Twice in Week
By vanrozenheim

(UK) - The home of a Gay couple in Greggan, Northern Ireland, has been attacked for the second time in a week. The attacks are said to be part of a homophobic hate campaign that has been ongoing for three years. The couple, one of whom is registered disabled, had their window broken last Friday – and then on Monday night their door was kicked in. Now the pair, who live in fear after being verbally abused, are considering leaving the home they have shared of 17 years. The verbal abuse, the Derry Gay support group, Rainbow Project says, include threats to burn them out. Both men have said they have been very happy living in Creggan and have had good neighbours all the time they have lived there. But now they say they have to really consider leaving for their own safety and mental health.
