Minneapolis police are looking for two men who attacked a gay woman late Thursday night.

32-year-old Kristen Boyne said she was walking from her apartment to Rainbow Foods in Uptown when two men called her a derogatory word for lesbian and then began punching her in the face and stomach until she lost consciousness.

"It just seemed really random," Boyne said.

Boyne said she offered her attackers her wallet and cell phone but they didn't want it.

Police say Boyne was treated at HCMC. Police urge anyone with information about this crime to call Sgt. Bruce Kohn at 612-673-2941.

March with us on Thursday, January 29th to walk in solidarity with Kristen Boyne, who was violently queer-bashed in the streets of Uptown.

Bring signs, banners, whatever!

Kristen was walking less than three blocks from her home when she was brutally attacked by two men. The unidentified assailants called her an "f---ing dyke", then punched and kicked her until she lost consciousness.
