VIDEO: Lesbian couple shows where they were assaulted on Hastings

‘He just did not like to see two girls kissing,’ Matson says

Ali Matson and Jacqueline Clarke say a man attacked them from behind as he followed them off the Hastings bus.

Girlfriends Ali Matson and Jacqueline Clarke take Xtra back to the bus stop, on Hastings Street at Commercial Drive, where a man allegedly assaulted them on Sept 18.

“He just did not like to see two girls kissing,” Matson says.

The only way to have perhaps avoided the attack, Clarke suggests, would have been to act “straighter.”

“But that’s kinda not who we are,” Matson says.
