Garden-State-EqualityThe offices of New Jersey LGBT rights group Garden State Equality were vandalized over the weekend while it’s director was on the premises.

Executive Director Christian Fuscarino said he was inside the office on Saturday evening preparing for an event when two people smashed the building’s glass front door, where a rainbow flag was draped.

Fuscarino wrote on Facebook:

Earlier today our offices were attacked. Considering the attackers hit the door exactly where the rainbow flag was affixed, we believe it was an obvious act of hate against New Jersey’s LGBT community. We have surveillance footage and fully expect the police to investigate it as an attack on all LGBT people.
