In Santa Monica, California, a young man required five staple stitches after being attacked by a group of men and smashed with a bottle, the Calgary Metro has reported.
Chris Ball told the paper he was attacked by the group as he left a bar alone after being called a faggot by a group of Trump supporters.
“People started launching homophobic slurs at me from afar,” he told the paper, “I mean, I kind of got into it, but I didn’t want to provoke them.”
“They were saying things like, ‘We got a new president you f**king faggots,” he said.
“I’m in pretty good spirits. That’s just how I have to handle it. I’m alive and well and still very gay,” he said.
The Metro notes that local police were not immediately available for comment to confirm details of Mr Ball’s account.
The reported attack is just one of numerous reported homophobic and racist slurs and attacks from ecstatic Trump supporters across the United States.
Shaun King, a Black Lives Matter activist, tweeted an image of a note reportedly left on a couple’s car in North Carolina.
“Can’t wait until your ‘marriage’ is overturned by a real president. Gay families = burn in hell! #Trump2016 #Repent #GODBLESS” the note read.
While Trump’s record is mixed at best on LGBT+ rights, his Vice President-elect, Mike Pence, is a staunch conservative who legalised LGBT+ discrimination while Governor of Indiana and supported ‘gay conversion therapy.’
LGBT+ advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign, has raised concern that ‘anti-LGBTQ extremists’ will be elevated to positions of power in a Trump administration.
Equality campaigners, who have worked with a supportive Obama administration over the last eight years, have been left shell-shocked at the prospect of a Trump presidency and Republican control of the House and Senate.
“This is a crucial moment for our nation and for the LGBTQ movement. The election of a man who stands opposed to our most fundamental values has left us all stunned,” Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin said in a public statement on the Campaign's website.
“To every LGBTQ person across this nation feeling stunned and disheartened, and questioning if they have a place in our country today, I say this: You do.
“Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise. Be bold, be strong, and continue to stand up for the principles that have always made America great,” he said.
