Gay couple recalls homophobic attack
In the early hours of June 24, as the city of Barcelona rejoiced in Saint John’s festivities, Yuri and Andree were on their way to the Fontana metro station when a man stopped them and asked for a lighter. He then looked at them carefully, and said: "I’m going to kill you, faggots." What followed was an "extremely violent" aggression, which left them physically injured and psychologically shocked. "For a moment I thought we would not survive," says Andree, recalling the incident in an interview with the Catalan News Agency.
