A man subjected to homophobic abuse by a stranger in a passing car responded in the most incredible way - by emptying a tube of glitter in his attacker's car.
Nick Hurley was walking home from work along Whitworth Street in Manchester city centre on Friday when he was called a ‘f****t’.
He was packed to celebrate Pride weekend in Brighton - so decided to make use of the biodegradable glitter he was carrying.
The 27-year-old designer acted when the car stopped at a set of traffic lights.
Nick said the two men looked horrified, before the car sped away.
He decided the share details of the incident on Twitter - adding “Your casual homophobia has super-gay consequences.”
Nick has used the opportunity to raise money for LGBT charity Stonewall.
