Event Description

Eight kids committed suicide in the past few months.
They were all gay and/or victims of homophobic bullying.
We can’t let this keep happening.
Come pay your respects to the teens who have died. Show that our community loves and supports queer youth. LGBTQ teens, you are loved!

After the vigil, come across the street to Bank Square coffee house, for social hour for Beacon Gay Group and our friends and allies.
Sponsored by Beacon Gay Group and concerned citizens.
