By Jonathan Adams Dec 16, 2008

H/T Towleroad Over the weekend, a vigil was held in Brooklyn in the name of Jose Sucuzhañay, who was killed by four men because they thought he and his brother were gay. The hate crime against Sucuzhañay was the second against an immigrant in a month. Marcelo Lucero, another Ecuadorean, was killed in Patchogue, New York in November. The victim’s family is reaching out to the public to bring the hateful attackers to justice. Diego Sucuzhanay says, "It shows how far we must still come to address the devastating problem of hate crimes in our communities. Only by exposing these crimes and working together will we be able to make a difference."
