In response to recent hate crimes targeting the LGBT community, The Gay and Lesbian Center of Greater Long Beach and Fitness Mecca will be hosting free self defense seminars on Saturday December 3rd and December 10th from 4:30pm-6:00pm at Fitness Mecca’s state of the art facilities located at 3289 Industry Drive in Signal Hill.
On December 17, 2010, shortly after 8:00 p.m., officers from the Long Beach Police Department responded to a vandalism call at the Gay and Lesbian Center in the 2000 block of 4th street. The preliminary investigation revealed that a male pulled up in front of the location, exited his vehicle, and threw a rock through the window then drove away.
Over the past 10 days, the Long Beach Police Department has received three separate complaints of assaults that have occurred in a downtown neighborhood, known for its population of gay and lesbian citizens and businesses. Although the geographic location and timing of the incidents are in close proximity, there is no indication that the three incidents are related.
