UW-Green Bay to hold vigil to address suicides of gay youth

Students at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay are hoping to shed light on anti-gay bullying by holding a candlelight vigil to address the suicides of gay youth. The vigil is in response to high-profile events across the country, including the tragedy at Rutgers University where a gay student committed suicide.

The vigil is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. near the Weidner Memorial Carillon on the UW-Green Bay campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive.

The Sexuality and Gender Alliance, a student organization at UW-Green Bay, is organizing the event along with UW-Green Bay’s American Intercultural Center. Organizers are planning a short program, a processional around the residence halls on campus and refreshments in the American Intercultural Center inside the University Union.
