Diversity Rules Magazine on the Air welcomes Spenser Gould, a member of Luke O'Donovan's Support Team, to the show to discuss Luke's case.
On New Year’s Eve of 2013, Luke O’Donovan attended a house party in Reynoldstown, a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. Luke was seen dancing with and kissing other men at the party. Later in the night he was insulted with homophobic slurs, and attacked by several people at once. Luke unsuccessfully attempted to escape, at which point several witnesses reported watching between 5 and 12 men ganging-up on Luke and stomping on his head and body, evidently with the intent to kill him. Luke was called a faggot before and during the attack
Luke O'Donovan was sentenced to jail for defending himself against his attackers. Luke was subsequently imprisoned and charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon as well as one count of attempted murder.
Luke and his story is the cover feature interview in the September issue.
