You are Loved Vigil

CQA will also dedicate its weekly meeting to a discussion of LGBT bullying and harassment. The meeting begins at 2 PM in the IRC Second Floor Conference Room, 552 W. 114th Street.
A message from CQA President Sean Udell:
Within the past two weeks, six young men between the ages of 13 and 19 have died from suicide as a result of homophobic bullying:
- Asher Brown (age 13)
- Seth Walsh (age 13)
- Justin Aaberg (age 15)
- Billy Lucas (age 15)
- Tyler Clementi (age 18)
- Raymond Chase (age 19)
Students at NYU are asking that we all come together as a collective community to remember those young men as well as all of those we have lost due to hatred and bigotry. CQA and the other campus LGBT groups will be joining our NYC community members for the “You are Loved Vigil,” and we’ll travel down to Washington Square Park together.
