A lesbian couple has been viciously attacked in front of their home by two neighbours.

Isabel Gaviria and Maria Perilla, who live in Bogotá, Colombia, were confronted by Yackeline Hurtado and her daughter Angie Hurtado.

Colombia has taken many steps towards LGBT equality in recent times. Earlier this year, three gay men married each other to become the first legally polyamorous family in the country.

And since 2015, Colombia has legalised marriage and adoption for same-sex couples.

Maria said that she and her wife, who have been together for nine years and married for one-and-a-half, had suffered homophobic abuse from Yackeline for years.

And in an incident recorded on the couple’s security camera, tensions boiled over after the Hurtados approached the married pair in their driveway.

Maria said she was going to record everything the mother and daughter said, at which point Yackeline took away Maria’s mobile phone.

And that’s when it got violent, as you can see in the video below.
