Two individuals were transported to a medical facility following a stabbing incident characterized by its homophobic nature. The victims, one in their twenties and the other in their thirties, were situated outside the Two Brewers Bar on Clapham High Street in the southern part of London. The incident occurred around 10:15 PM on Sunday.

Subsequent to the assault, both victims received medical attention at the hospital and were subsequently released. The Metropolitan Police are actively pursuing the perpetrator responsible for the attack, which is being treated as a case of homophobia.

Detective Inspector Gary Castle said: “We are acutely aware of the shock this attack will cause members of the LGBT+ community and want to reassure people that an urgent investigation is ongoing to locate the person responsible.

“We recently announced the reinstatement of LGBT+ community liaison officers for each of our 12 basic command units in London to support and advise on investigations where homophobia is a motive, and to ensure the community has a dedicated point of contact to address any concerns they may have.”

The Two Brewers, a renowned LGBT+ establishment, functions as both a cabaret bar and a dance club, offering patrons a range of entertainment including drag acts, karaoke sessions, and live viewings of the popular TV series “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

On the evening of Sunday, the venue had organized a cabaret event as part of its Sunday Funday Cabaret series. The roster of performers featured individuals such as Mary Mac, Gladys Duffy, Sandra, Marsha Mallow, and DJ Demon.

“It’s totally unacceptable for these attacks to continue on our high street”, one witness tweeted following the incident. “I’m relieved the victims have been discharged”, they added, thanking the bar’s security.

“It’s shocking and disgusting that in 2023 this is becoming frighteningly more frequent”, Mary Mac added.

“The team at The Two Brewers were incredible in dealing with this and keeping us inside the venue safe, glad the victims have been discharged and hope they are with loved ones now to help.”
