1000 March For Officially Dead Lawrence King


We knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it any easier to hear that 15-year old Lawrence King has been taken off the ventilator after being shot by a classmate last week. Sources speculate the alleged shooter may have shot King for being too effeminate. A hate crime charge has officially been filed against 14-year old Brandon McInerney.

An estimated 1,000 people marched in Oxnard, California this weekend to pay their respects to King and raise public awareness of homophobic violence.
