At yesterday's Tea Party rally in Boston, protestors from Occupy Wall Street and Join the Impact MA shouted down Uganda's "Kill the Gays" architect, Scott Lively's, address to the crowd about the dangers of "faggots." During the non-violent occupy-boston-arrest.jpegculture clash Boston's finest stepped in to rough up the young queers and their supporters. Photographer Paul Weiskel captured this young man getting choked for holding a dangerous object - a pink wig. Here's his account of the incident:

I turned to him and said "Don't push me". he replied "Don't push you?!" then did this. You can decide yourself if this was deserved or not.
