"No one should be made to feel unsafe because who they are or who they love. The spate of bias attacks against LGBT New Yorkers in recent weeks is unacceptable and must end now. Our free self-defense classes will teach violence prevention strategies to New Yorkers and will provide the community with the tools they need to stay safe."

-- New York City Speaker Christine Quinn announcing that the city will host a series of self-defense classes for LGBT people following a recent spate of anti-gay violence.
