Fellow blogger Ruth Holladay's cousin, Joe Holladay, was recently beaten on the Upper East Side on gay pride weekend. Joe went to school in Indianapolis before eventually finding his way to Boston where he lives currently.

According to the New York Daily News:

A man visiting a friend on the upper East Side was robbed and pistol-whipped during Gay Pride weekend by a group of hoodlums yelling anti-gay slurs, the victim and cops said Sunday.

Joseph Holladay, 36, said he was set upon by at least three men on E. 85th St. about 4 a.m. Saturday.

I hope Ruth keeps us up to date on Joe's condition. Our hearts go out to him in this difficult time.
