A man visiting a friend on the upper East Side was robbed and pistol-whipped during Gay Pride weekend by a group of hoodlums yelling anti-gay slurs, the victim and cops said Sunday.

Joseph Holladay, 36, said he was set upon by at least three men on E. 85th St. about 4 a.m. Saturday.

"Out of nowhere, I'm being attacked," he said from his bed at New York Presbyterian-Hospital Weill Cornell, a nasty gush visible on his forehead.

One of the robbers called out, "What are you looking at?" and used an anti-gay epithet, the Boston man added.
