White women in queer spaces, often seek a drunken night out without the worry of harassment and assault from heterosexual men.
These parties can generate lots of money for queer venues and drag queens. However, after conducting research in Provincetown, Massachusetts, the researchers found that these parties can also destroy queer safe spaces that LGBTQ communities have long sought to establish. The researchers call this process “hetrification.”
Neighbors say they've never heard anything like it anywhere. Vile anti-gay slurs caught on a Ring camera hurled at a gay couple in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Anti-Asian slurs too. All in a long-simmering dispute over a back alley parking space.
The white couple caught on tape insist they're not anti-gay or anti-Asian, but the language is pretty rough.
