Albert Needs Our Help - Violently Attacked in WeHo - in ICU

Donation protected
On Friday April 5th our beloved Alberto Vasquez was brutally assaulted by an unknown person (or persons). He was left bleeding and unconscious with a cracked skull in a bar parking lot in West Hollywood.

We do not know if he was randomly attacked by a stranger in what could be a homophobic or racist hate crime, or if he was attacked by someone he interacted with at one of the bars.

Alberto was taken by EMS to a hospital on Saturday morning and spent the past week in critical condition. We are relieved that he is expected to survive, but he will need multiple surgeries, has possible brain damage, and has a long road ahead to recovery.

While we await further details about his recovery timetable from medical staff, we are beginning to raise money that will be used to cover medical and living expenses as he will be unable to work for the foreseeable future.

Update: Heart WeHo is refusing to release footage from that night, which has roused suspicion. We are hiring a lawyer to apply pressure and stay tuned for a potential rally when they open for business Thursday night.

His family will be administering this fund. Gloria Jimenez is his sister and victim advocate.
