PALM SPRINGS -- Reggie Cameron was walking down one of the busiest thoroughfares of Palm Springs when two men approached him, demanded his wallet and knocked him in the face with a rock.
The men yelled homophobic slurs, Cameron says, before he escaped, running bloodied into Toucans Tiki Lounge, a bar popular with gays, on North Palm Canyon Drive.
He had just left a Saturday night gay and lesbian awards ceremony.
On Thursday, Cameron met with Palm Springs police Chief Al Franz to voice concerns that other residents might not be reporting hate crimes.
More than 30 other people sat around the table, including the city's LGBT outreach committee, business owners and concerned residents.
