      If it was even a legal seller it wouldn’t be hard to deface/melt it down enough for it to be unrecognizable.

      I’m sorry, is this a gossip site? Does Queerty has a basic “no-fact check” policy?

      You can read the correct story, from the undisputed newspaper of record for San Francisco’s LGBT community, the Bay Area Reporter, here http://ebar.com/news/article.php?sec=news&article=6132

      Why was the story removed?

      Or, alternately, why was it ever here at all?
