The New York Community is reeling from a string of recent hate crimes. This weekend an openly gay man, Mark Carson, was shot in the head and died because he was a homosexual. This is the fifth crime in 15 days.
The community is mobilizing for a march and rally this evening.
A march will begin at 5:30PM at the LGBT Center located at 208 West 13th Street.
It will end with a rally at the site of Mr. Carson's death at the intersection West 8th Street and 6th Ave.
