Fight back! Make art!

Thats what art photographer Iannis Delatolas did after being horribly gay bashed by a thug at a bar.

Here’s what he told me:

“On the night of Friday the 17th of February, I went to Mission Dolores, a gay friendly bar in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. The bar has a courtyard. I often go there with my dog Tulip because they allow dogs in the courtyard.

“I got in line to order a beer, and a white man in his mid twenties cut in front of me as I was about to order.

“I told him to wait his turn and he mouthed off some ‘fuck you, you fucking queer’. I had some loud words with him, and he took his beer and left. I was shaken, I go there all the time, I never thought this would happen there.
