“Hey You Faggot!!”

Before you get all worked up about the title of this post, read ahead.

Last night on my way back from work, I was riding down West Side Highway here in NYC. The Christopher street light turned red and I had to stop. I was in the center lane and on my right a Ford 150 truck pulls up with a guy at the wheel.

Two pedestrians…guys cross in front of us. They are holding hands and are walking towards the waterfront.

One of them asks me “What year model is the bike”.

I say “1991”.

He replies “That’s old maan !”

And I am thinking….”Hmm well yes”

At that instant the light turns green and I put into gear and move on.

All of a sudden I hear the guy in the truck shout out “Hey You Faggot, get outa here”.

Believe me I was a bit taken aback. Not because the guy shouted out “faggot” but because this happened in NYC.

NYC is one of the most liberated cities in the world when it comes to homosexuality. And hence for this to happen in NYC was a shocker. If it was in Texas, Nebraska, Illinois, Oklahoma or any redneck middle of the country place, it wouldn’t be shocking.

I slow down and let the truck pass me. And bingo….it has Texas license plates.

My faith in fellow New Yorkers is back up.

Rock on NYC.
