A gay couple was recently attacked for holding hands in the Netherlands.

Jasper Vernes-Sewratan and his husband, Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes were on their way home from a party at Luxor Live, in their hometown Arnhem early on Sunday (2 April).

The couple were walking hand in hand when they were attacked by a group of men.

Ronnie lost four front teeth, as well as part of a fifth one, and suffered a severed lip.

Politicians and celebs have since responded by holding hands in public.
