In some social media circles and online sources there has been recent discussion of the incident on October 3rd, 2018 that involved myself and Larry Hayes. I just want to make a couple of comments to correct misinformation I am seeing.
I went over to Larry Hayes because he called a Chinese Canadian candidate named Jimmy Zhao an idiot. Since I experienced insensitivity myself as a new immigrant, I sympathized with Jimmy and wanted to help Jimmy. It’s simply because of this remark, and not SOGI at all that I tried to talk to Larry Hayes. At that time, I didn’t even know who he was, let alone what he believed in or his background. Why should I ask him about SOGI? This is neither a matter of ideological differences nor that of LGBT issues.
Please be accurate in reporting this matter.
