Pleas ring out during week of remembrances

“I understand suicide. I attempted it once, so I understand the pain that takes someone to that breaking point,” said Renee Brown-Worrell, at the funeral service for her stepson Joseph Jefferson, October 31st in Brooklyn.

Around the country, many were celebrating and honoring those who died, and despite the commercialism and costuming, All Hallows or Halloween or El Dia de Los Muerto, it was a day when the family and Black gay community in New York City gathered to remember, celebrate the life of Jefferson, who hung himself on Oct 23, and say goodbye.
