Abby Zimet

Flouting accepted New York etiquette that says just ignore ranters, weirdos or wandering evangelicals until they go away, a gay man riding the subway confronted a so-called preacher yelling anti-gay bile at his captive audience, shouting him down with, "You are false." In a fine New York moment, his fellow-travellers erupted in applause.

"I’m a good man, and I’m a gay man, and Jesus loves me. Do not listen to this man - he is full of hatred and fear."
