USA. CRIME. KILLED FOR VOGUEING. BEYONCE PAYS TRIBUTE.
Beyoncé has paid tribute to O’Shae Sibley, the gay man and dancer stabbed dead at a New York gas station because he was voguing to one of her songs. According to eyewitnesses, including gas station employee Summy Ullah and close friend Otis Pena, Sibley and his friends were voguing to Beyoncé’s Renaissance when they were approached by a gang of men who aggressively told them to stop dancing and called them homophobic slurs. Surveillance footage shows Sibley confronting the men before being stabbed. He was later pronounced dead. We were astonished that, in New York, such a terrible crime can still happen. GAY45 pays tribute to O’Shae Sibley by publishing his photo so we never forget how a young, talented, beautiful young man was killed for…existing.
