To The King Family & Friends:
Please accept my deepest condolences with respect to your loss. As an older gay man who has previously endured the many types of humiliation, fear, name calling and such while always looking over my shoulder, Larry's story that the Ellen Show portrayed brought it all back and made it real. I couldn't shut off the tears for days. It should hurt and bother us! Time, experience and wrongful human loss hasn't tought us much yet. However, maybe, just maybe, something good can come from Larry's passing where his unnecessary death can become a catalyst of acceptance, understanding, hope and support that is needed so very much at all levels throughout our country. It all has to count for something good. It just has to!
Take care & hugs.
