The Cologne radio presenter Jürgen Domian complains about the dangerous situation for gays in Cologne as follows:
By the way, we were already so far in the 90s that two men could stroll hand in hand across the Cologne ring roads on Saturday evening. Today they should not dare to do that anymore. Too big a danger of getting punched in the face. And not by Nazis or other lunatics, but by men who themselves or their parents come from Muslim societies. From societies in which homophobia, misogyny and anti-Semitism are part of everyday life.
