A real estate agent called a rainbow youth worker a “f….. supporter” after she spoke out against a homophobic assault.

The real estate agent has since apologised for using the slur, but the target of his comment is still disappointed.

On Sunday, InsideOUT’s managing director Tabby Besley told Stuff about an alleged attack on a gay couple during Wellington’s pride celebrations. 

InsideOUT is a charity which supports LGBTQIA-plus youth.

Immediately after the news reports were published, Besley received an email, which Stuff has seen, saying: “You are just a fagott supporter” (sic).
