Wall Street I-Bankers, Bridge + Tunnel Crowd Treated to Flash Mob ‘Die In’ At Grand Central

THE SHOT — The scene this evening at Grand Central Station in New York City at “Flash Mob: Homophobia Kills Die-In,” where “several hundred” took part in taking over the transit hub during the 6pm rush hour as the names of the recently bullied-to-death and murdered LGBTs were read aloud. Transit police say they arrested two people. [via Gay City News]

    Isn’t that kind of a dumb place to choose to do that? Wall Street bankers and the bridge & tunnel crowd are already basically gay-supportive segments of society.

    Bridge & Tunnel don’t use Grand Central as the trains from there only go to Westchester & Rockland counties and Connecticut. B&T commuters use Penn Station.

    I would have just stepped on em to get to my train.

    That was NOT cool, someone could have thought it was a terrorist bio-attack and maybe have a heart attack as a result from being so freaked out.

  • slobone

    Flash mobs are SO 2008. And that doesn’t even look like a very big one…

    @Ian: you are a loser, and probably pretty old too, judging by what you are saying. Don’t you know that the gay community is deeply ageist? shut up old man, nobody cares what you have to say

  • UpStaircase

    What makes you think Ian isn’t some hot young medic? (Besides, whatever his age is, he’s right). Anyway, when this group does something like this right in the heart of homophobic territory, like at that White Castle on Staten Island, I’ll be impressed.

  • Cj Maciejeski would be like being in the middle of that flashforward show.
