Two men were attacked in a nightclub in Valencia, Spain.

On Saturday (August 10), the two Italian men – aged 19 and 25 – were out in a Spanish nightclub when they were insulted and beaten and called the Italian nationwide hotline, Gay Help Line, for treatment for their injuries.

According to Fabrizio Marrazzo, the director of the help line, the couple plan to file a complaint with the Italian consulate.

Marrazzo added: “We are calling on the Italian Foreign Ministry to intervene to provide maximum support to the men and prevent the aggressors from going unpunished.”
