Nathan was traveling solo through Europe recently. He had broken up with his boyfriend at home and felt he needed to spend some time alone and explore new places.
Nathan was staying at a hostle in Italy for a few nights. On his last night, he was showering when two men came into the bathroom. They both attacked Nathan and stuffed a hankerchief in his mouth, then one held him down while the other one raped him. They kept insulting him and calling him a faggot.
When Nathan called us he was distraught and suicidal. One of our case managers stayed on the phone with Nathan for hours. He didn't want to report the attack to the police. He just wanted to come home.
We booked a new hotel room for Nathan for the night and re-booked his airline flight. We continue to provide counseling to Nathan.
