Gay Bashing Victim Shares Powerful Video About Love And Resilience

A San Francisco man who was recently gay bashed shared a powerful video on Facebook that is going viral.

Jeffrey Lafayette says he was attacked by over 20 people, and that the attack was triggered by his decision to wear white pants (he dryly mentions in the video the bashing had “nothing to do with Labor Day”).

But those are the semantics. His video isn’t about his injuries or being a victim, it’s to send a message to everyone out there who may be getting knocked down (metaphorically or literally) to always get back up:

“But no matter how hard they hit, no matter how cruel life will be, you must always GET UP!”

It’s a short and deeply powerful video that has been viewed nearly one million times. Lafayette is temporarily unable to work due to his injuries, and he set up a GoFundMe page to cover his expenses while he recovers.

Watch below, and make sure you stick around for his final message.
