March to End Anti-LGBT Hate Violence

I'm at work this evening, but here are some photos I grabbed off my friends' FB pages of the march getting started outside The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in Greenwich Village.

Wilson Cruz, GLAAD's national spokesperson said:
"While our community has made progress, this is a stark and sobering reminder of the rife homophobia that still exists in our culture. These crimes are intended to scare and silence LGBT people. However, as a proud New York native, I am confident that our community and our city will not be silenced, but will rather come together to stop this rash of senseless violence."
I think we've all been shaken and angered by the murder of Mark Carson. Here's hoping something good comes out of this senseless and brutal act of cowardice.
