On Sunday, his former minister was in Bangor to lead a special service and spread an important message of equality.
TV5 spoke Reverend Richard Forcier after the morning service at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Bangor. Forcier says, ":in remembering Charlie Howard’s murder and our response so long ago, we become re-motivated to the cause of equality for all.":
That cause is on display in Bangor each July 7th when folks gather for a memorial service and then walk to the State Street Bridge and throw flowers into the stream in Howard’s honor.
