LGBTQ candlelight vigil march

October 20, 2010 | 9:25 p.m. CDT
Chaz Freck, 10, and his mom Susan Freck and Jayme Aquino, 24, walk in the candlelight vigil for members of the LGBTQ community who committed suicide. LGBTQ youth led the supporters downtown to the United Methodist Church where they announced the names of those who had committed suicide the previous month, followed by a screening of the movie Bullied. An estimated 250 people attended, a number that far surpassed everyone's expectation, Megan Lee, the volunteer coordinator for The Center Project, said.
