Show of support for gay victims of PEI firebombing

Approximately 60 people gathered in Charlottetown, PEI, this weekend to take part in a Hug and Kiss-in event to show their support for a gay couple whose house was firebombed on Oct 18.

“We should be aware that homophobia exists and be ready to stand against it,” said event organizer Brad Deighan.

The event follows an outpouring of support from inside the small island community of approximately
141,551 people.

The fire is being investigated by the RCMP and has been called a hate crime by a local United Church minister.

Xtra will have more on this in the coming days.
