Last week, a 22-year-old person of color was brutally attacked in Los Angeles. While previous information regarding the victim's gender identity was unclear, authorities have now clarified that the victim's name is Vivian and she uses female pronouns.
A brutal attack on a 22-year-old person of color in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles on Thursday night left the victim severly injured and requiring hospitalization to recover from multiple injuries. The victim's sisters suggest that their sibling was dressed in women's clothes at the time of the attack, and say the police are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
In a historic move, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has elected its first-ever openly gay bishop. The Rev. Dr. Guy Erwin has been elected to a six-year term to the Southwest California Synod, which encompasses the greater Los Angeles area.
