Since the cowardly rash of attacks on the city's gay community is still happening, Christine Quinn and the City Council are offering free self-defense classes starting this weekend, stressing prevention but probably not ruling out punches. In addition, openly gay State Senator Brad Hoylman will hold a public forum next week on the city's thirteen-year-old laws against such bigoted assaults, telling the Daily News, "We need to examine whether we're doing everything we can to prevent, report and prosecute hate crimes."
