RIP, Harry Wieder

Very sad to hear that Harry Wieder, a self-described "disabled, gay, Jewish, leftist, middle-aged dwarf who ambulates with crutches," was killed Tuesday night after being struck by a taxi leaving a Community Board 3 monthly meeting at P.S. 20. Wieder was a well-known LGBT rights activist as well as a transportation and disabilities advocate. He was 57.
