Scott Johnson inquest hears soldiers used to bash gay men at Sydney's North Head

Scott Johnson inquest hears soldiers used to bash gay men at Sydney's North Head
- A witness who cannot be identified told the court it was common knowledge that gay men met for sex in the area.
He said that in 1986 and 1987, he socialised with several groups of soldiers, that trained in the area, at the Hotel Steyne in Manly.
The witness said the group was sitting around and having a laugh when the soldiers mentioned that "they'd gone bashing queers".
"They came in and one of the people in the group said 'oh, where have you been?' and they said 'we were looking for poofters'.
"They were proud of it. They thought it was fun and games.
