That gay man who was in a secret homosexual relationship with a Ukrainian man in Florida has spoken out for the first time about being brutally beaten and blinded by his former lover, and three members of the lover’s family. Via WPLG:

“Because I’m gay, yes,” the victim told Local 10 News’ Rosh Lowe. “Because I’m gay, they think I turned his son gay.”

As a result of that beating, the victim has lost his vision.

“Medically there is nothing they can do for me,” he said. “The nerves were dead.”

According to police, Oleh Makarenko was in a nine-month homosexual relationship with the victim.

That relationship ended with the alleged lover horribly beaten by members of Makarenko’s family, police believe.

Investigators say Makarenko’s family, who are Ukrainian immigrants, became enraged when they found out he was in a gay relationship.

It was on August 6th that authorities say the family barged into the victim’s home and all four of the suspects began punching, kicking, and hitting him all over his face and body.

He broke down while speaking about how his life has been forced to change, and how its impacting his family.

“My mom used to depend on me and I’m no longer able to help her,” he said. “I honestly don’t know how I am able to keep it together.”
