Gay Suicide Victims Remembered At New York Vigil

NYU students gathered in New York’s Washington Square park last night for a vigil remembering Tyler Clementi, the Rutgers University freshman who committed suicide after his college roommate (allegedly) secretly videotaped him having sex with another male, as well as other recent gay suicide victims.

Event organizer Ryan Rockmore said the vigil “came about last Wednesday. There was a coming out panel at NYU, which I was serving on, and we spoke about the suicides which have recently happened,” he told MTV News. “And I thought of the idea of a vigil and I collaborated with the LBGT office and members of my fraternity to come together to really create this big event.”

Ellen Degeneres recently spoke out about the suicide, saying she was “devastated” over the sad turn of events.
So sad.

Courtney Love: Post-Concert Oblivion
