A Vigil: For the lives lost due to homophobic bullying

Wed, 10/06/2010 - 18:00 to 20:00

We have lost so much in the recent weeks. 

Let us come together to honour these young lives and the lives and stories we never hear about, to take strength from the company of each other and to bring awareness to this serious issue of homophobic/transphobic bullying in the school system and beyond.
