Top Chef Contestant Victim of Gay Bashing
Josie Smith-Malave got the neo-nazi treatment over Labor Day weekend and in Sea Cliff of all places! I grew up (unsuccessfully) in Glen Cove, which is adjacent to Sea Cliff, one of the most beautiful and delightfully liberal towns on the North Shore of Long Island.
On the face of this, it's hard to comprehend something like this happening in the Sea Cliff that I know. But really it's not surprising that a town that in effect invites everyone in, would be host to a bunch of homophobic dirt bags whose idea of fun is to harass a someone because they happen to have been born gay.
This is very disappointing -to say the least.
