A drag queen entertainer was also injured this week, though less seriously, in a beating that happened Sunday at a take-out pizza restaurant in Northwest, Metro Weekly reported. In that videotaped attack, a drag queen is seen in an argument with two women inside the restaurant who hit her and yank her around by the hair, causing her to bleed from the head.

The Metropolitan Police Department is not calling that incident a hate crime, with a spokesman stating that the victim and the attackers all knew one another.
