Berlin's culture senator Klaus Lederer (left) was outraged by shots fired at the gay museum in Berlin-Tiergarten. "I am shocked by this horrific act! My full solidarity goes to the GayMuseum," Lederer wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. "There must not be the slightest slack in the fight against queer hostility."
The museum on Lützowstrasse announced on Tuesday that six bullet points had already been found on the front of the house last Friday. "Two window panes, the neon sign and a work of art in front of the front door were damaged."
The damage was probably done the night before. The police investigated the crime scene. Nothing is known about the murder weapon.
In April 2020 there were stones thrown on window panes, it was said. In 2016, a window was damaged by metal balls in six places. The Gay Museum was founded in 1985. It is funded by the state of Berlin and features exhibitions on the history, art and activism of the gay movement. The "Tagesspiegel" had reported.
