Australia has long had a gay beach subculture but they haven't always been safe spaces

How gay-friendly is Australia’s beach culture?Cast your vote in Australia’s best beach poll“Surfers go to south Bondi, backpackers, families and people from western Sydney go in the middle, then gays go to north Bondi.”The advice Dan Murphy was given upon arriving in Sydney from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 2003 is an unspoken rule.

Dr Dao - a doctor with patients to serve the next day - was "selected" by United Airlines to be removed from an overbooked plane. As he had patients to tend the next day he did not think he should leave the plane. So the airline sent thugs to bash him up and forcibly removed him. The video (truly sickening) went viral. But the airline did ...
