UW-Whitewater students rally after woman in ‘gay’ shirt hit

WHITEWATER — Students at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater are rallying after a woman was punched in the face while wearing a T-shirt that said “Legalize gay.”

Between 50 and 100 people gathered Friday afternoon to raise awareness of hate crimes.

The victim is a UW-Whitewater student. Campus police say she was walking down a street late last month when she was approached by two men she didn’t know.

She says one called her a homophobic slur and punched her, bruising her face.

Police released profiles of the two suspects shortly after the alleged attack. A police lieutenant said Friday that no arrests have been made.

University spokeswoman Mary Beth Mackin says the attack “shocked” the campus. She says that’s not what UW-Whitewater is about.
