There was an excellent and well-attended service last night at the Cathedral of Hope in memory of Lawrence King, the California student who was shot to death by a classmate in February for being gay.
You can read all about the service in this week’s print edition, but I’d also like to point you to this story from Saturday’s L.A. Times. The story offers an in-depth look at some of the circumstances leading up to the crime, including the troubled home life of alleged shooter Brandon McInerney (pictured above).
Maybe the media is finally starting to pick up on the significance of King’s murder. As one of the speakers said last night, if you relied on the mainstream media, you wouldn’t think there’d been an anti-gay hate crime since Matthew Shepard.
