Six years since the murder of Eddie Garzon...

Tuesday, September 4 will mark the sixth year since the death of Eddie Garzon.

Leonor and Armando Garzon, his parents, would like to invite readers in the New York City metropolitan area to join them on Tuesday for a vigil in his memory that will take place in Jackson Heights, Queens, beginning at 7:30pm at the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and 80th Street (Take the F/E/R/7 Trains to Roosevelt Avenue/74th St).

On Thursday, September 6th, the family will also be holding a remembrance mass at the Our Lady of Fatima Church at 25-56 80th Street in Jackson Heights, Queens.

For more information you can write to the Garzons at or call 718 899-8035.

In related news, over at The Republic of T. blogger Terrence Heath has launched an online LGBT Hate Cimes Project and featured the tragic deaths of Eddie Garzon and Julio Rivera - both within a block though 11-years apart - in yesterday's post.

Thanks Terrance.

Thanks, Andres. I only hope I did justice to the story of what happened in his death.
