New submission from Niamh & Nat

Myself and my partner were walking down Chapel Lane towards Bank Street and a group of drunk men started yelling at us. They thought we were two gay men, and one of the guys started running towards us, shouting after us. Luckily the street was busy, so we walked quickly towards the bar to get away from them.

A woman walking towards us said “They’re assholes”, which was nice to hear that someone was on our side. It shook us both, and it was eye opening because previously I have only been harassed as a “dyke”. This is the first time I’ve had harassment because myself and my partner were perceived as gay men.
