Gay Activism Round-Up: Upcoming Events

Just a quick note tonight on some upcoming LGBT-related action events:

There will be a meeting for the NYC chapter of Join the Impact (the people who organized, from practically nothing, a massive nationwide day of protest against Proposition 8 on November 15th that drew hundreds of thousands of people) at the LGBT Community Center (W. 13th Street, between 6th and 7th). If you're interested in helping plan and carry out upcoming actions, this meeting will be a great place to be.

Also--and I'm waiting for specifics on this one--there will be a candlelight vigil held by New York's Latino, immigrant, and LGBT communities to mourn the brutal, anti-Latino and anti-gay murder of Jose Sucuzhanay, a straight man who was beaten to death with an aluminum baseball bat by four men who merely thought he was gay (the PDA that led to his death was, according to various reports, an arm around his brother's shoulder, a coat put on his brother because it was late and cold). I will of course keep you posted on specifics when I find them out.
