Alba Martinez, a transgender woman, alleges she was attacked by five gay men outside a bar in West Hollywood, though there is no police report from the event.

 Martinez created a GoFundMe post to cover groceries, bills and medical costs, according to WeHoville. 

“As a Trans Woman of Color, there are virtually no spaces where I am safe, and getting ganged up on by 5 gay men in West Hollywood (the supposed ‘gay capital’ of LA) was absolutely terrifying,” she wrote in her GoFundMe post. “I was violently attacked in the face, bruised and cut up, and left unconscious in a dark alleyway.”

Martinez’s post features a photo of her swollen and bruised face. She said her mental health forced her to withdraw from UCLA and that she is no longer getting the financial aid she was receiving. So far, she’s raised $8,799.
