A young man had his nose broken for calling another “good-looking” during a night out in Madrid's trendy Malasaña district. Two men sustained fractures to their face in the capital's Puerta del Sol after they were attacked while returning home from a party. Another man was kicked to the ground in the working class Vallecas neighborhood by a gang of youths to cries of “fag, cross-dresser, AIDS carrier, cocksucker.” Such incidents are being reported every other day in Madrid. So far this year, there have been 98 attacks reported against LGBT individuals in the region.
