Washington, DC’s two prominent LGBT publications, Metro Weekly and the Washington Blade, have recently been targeted with vandalism. Since as far back as February, distribution boxes for their free print versions have been filled with human and animal waste and garbage while copies have been removed and thrown out in nearby garbage cans. Sean Bugg, co-publisher of Metro Weekly, believes the vandalism is motivated by anti-gay animus and constitutes an “attack on our readers as much as an attack on our business.”
