"Woman Assaulted At Sizzler: Kicked, Threatened, Called ‘He-She Freak’"

Lambda Legal has field a lawsuit on behalf of Liza Friedlander, a woman who was “physically and verbally assaulted for her perceived sexual orientation.” Friedlander was out to brunch at Sizzler Restaurant in Forest Hills, Queens, when an employee of the restaurant approached Friedlander, claiming she hadn’t paid, and then “proceeded to shove Friedlander and kick her. Patrons joined in assaulting her, with one customer calling her a ‘he-she freak’ and another threatening to sexually assault her. The injuries she inflicted required an ambulance.”
