Gay teen Michael CauserA vigil on Tuesday, 2 August will remember murdered Whiston teenager Michael Causer on the third anniversary of his death.

The 18-year-old was physically attacked by two other teenagers while walking home from a party in Huyton on 25 July, 2008. Michael, who was gay, was targeted for his sexuality. He sustained massive injuries and died seven days later, after emergency surgery failed to save him.

Michael’s friends and family will join Liverpool’s LGBT* community on Tuesday evening to remember his life. The event takes place in Temple Square, Temple Lane (off Victoria Street), L2 5RH, in the Stanley Street Quarter of the city.

From the Michael Causer Foundation:

We have invited representatives of the region’s LGBT organisations to speak about how Michael’s death affected them and how they see their work since his death. We are his legacy – how we work together in partnership for the safety and well-being of the region’s LGBT community will be the legacy that Michael never lived to create himself but we are doing it every day by our work and commitment. Michael can inspire us to continue our work.
