Vigil For Mark Carson

A vigil was held for Mark Carson early this morning in Greenwich Village.  Mr. Carson was murdered on West 8th Street after being chased from a restaurant and harassed because of his sexual orientation.  This is the fifth hate crime against a member of the LGBTQ community in New York City this month. 


There will be a rally and march tomorrow, May 20th, gathering at the LGBT Center on West 13th Street.  The march is scheduled to begin at 5:30pm and will finish at the corner of 6th Ave. and West 8th Street.
