Halsey has paid tribute to the lesbian couple who were viciously attacked on a London bus.
Last week, Melania Geymonat, a 28-year-old Ryanair flight attendant from Uruguay, was en route to Camden town on a bus with a woman called Chris when they were approached by a group of four homophobic men.
After harassing them with anti-gay slurs, they demanded the couple kiss each other in front of them for their own entertainment. When Melania and Chris refused, the men assaulted and robbed them.
During her performance at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, North London, Halsey came out wearing a photo of the couple – which was taken shortly after the attack – on the front of her shirt. On the back it read ‘FUCK YOUR STRAIGHT PRIDE’.
