Kevin Aviance “Four youths were charged with a hate crime assault on a gay singer who was attacked as he left a Manhattan gay bar, police said on Sunday. Kevin Aviance, 38, who scored No. 1 dance hits on the Billboard charts with ‘Da Da Din’ and more recently ‘Alive’ in 2003, was attacked late Saturday and kicked by four youths who called him ‘faggot.’ [Yahoo News]

Kevin “hopes to recover in time to perform at the Gay Pride Parade on June 25. Aviance was wearing a black sleeveless hoodie, black shorts and boots when he walked down East 13th Street; Clarence Patton, of the NYC Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project, summed up the fears about the attack to the NY Times, ‘People will say: Here it is. Kevin Aviance in the East Village in boy’s clothes, in a place that’s supposed to be ours, getting beat up.’ The attack occured around 1AM on Saturday night, which is not that late for the East Village – do you feel that the neighborhood is safe or unsafe then?” [Gothamist
