Man Records Himself Spitting on Pride Flag outside Astoria Gay Bar

A man spat on a gay pride flag hanging outside of Queen’s oldest LGBTQ bar and recorded a video of it which he posted online Monday — and now the bar’s owner and staff are asking the public for help identifying him.

The owner of Albatross Bar, located at 36-19 24th Ave., said he received a copy of the video via e-mail Monday night, shortly after it was posted to YouTube. He said he initially thought to ignore it, but after thinking on it, he decided to post it to try to find the suspect.

He downloaded the video, rather than posting it directly from Youtube so the spitter wouldn’t get any views.
