Gay couple on 'Hate in America'

The case of a gay couple assaulted outside New York's Madison Square Garden in 2013 will be featured on Investigation Discovery's one-hour special Hate in America, premiering Monday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. CT.

The series features Emmy-winning journalist and Al-Jazeera anchor Tony Harris as he travels to communities torn apart by violence, coming face to face with the victims of modern-day hate to examine the roots of intolerance in the United States through the lens of three recent hate crimes.

On Feb. 23, Harris examines the 2013 hate crime in which fashion designer Nick Porto and his then-boyfriend Kevin were called an anti-gay slur by a passerby following a Knicks Game at Manhattan's Madison Square Garden.

Porto confronted the man but was shoved to the ground and suddenly surrounded by a group of men, who pulled him into the street and beat him. He walked away with his life; Parto later posted photos of his bloodied face on Instagram.

Frankie Knuckles movie to be filmed in Chicago

A new feature film, The Warehouse, will celebrate late house-music legend Frankie Knuckles and Chicago's Warehouse nightclub, where the internationally recognized musical genre was born.

Bob Teitel ( Men of Honor, Barber Shop ), Billy Dec ( Rockit Ranch/Elston Films ), Randy Crumpton ( The Truth ) and Joe Shanahan ( Metro/Smartbar/Double Door ) will produce the movie, which will be filmed in Chicago.

The producers will host a launch party and Frankie Knuckles Foundation ( FKF ) benefit at The Underground, 56 W. Illinois St., at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31 ( one year after Knuckles untimely passing ).

Tickets start at $20 and include a two-hour cocktail-and-hors d'oeuvres reception at 6-8 p.m. Limited VIP tables are available. To purchase tickets, visit www.TheUndergroundChicago.com . All of ticket proceeds will benefit FKF.
