Memorials for our Flo,

Received this msg:


Howdy all, for all folks in San Francisco there will be a gathering in honor of Flo at Dolores Park on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 7p.m. Please come and celebrate our love for our dear beautiful friend.


Also, this from Baltimore:


The MICA Fibers department would like to host a gathering of remembrance to share cherished moments and memories in honor of Flo McGarrell on Wednesday, January 20th at 7 pm in the Middendorf Gallery at the Mount Royal Station building. Please join us.

If you have images, videos or other mementoes, or would like to write something about Flo to share (either with everyone, or as a note to Flo's parents), we encourage you to bring them with you on Wednesday. Please pass this along to anyone who may also be interested in attending this celebration of Flo's life. If you have images or thoughts you would like to share, but cannot make it, please let us know in the comments. Feel free to upload images and video to this event posting as well.

If you would like to make a contribution in memory of Flo, please consider a donation to Yele Haiti, a foundation chosen by his family that is devoted to transforming the country through programs in education, sports, and the arts.



MICA = The Maryland Institute, College Of Art. It's where Flo received his undergrad degree.

We are planning something for Boston, but it will be more of a fundraiser for Haiti and it will take place sometime in mid to late February. I know that there is something being planned in Montpelier, Vermont that will take place sometime this week. More information on that memorial will be posted as plans are made.

Please send any additional information about upcoming memorials and I'll post them here.


  1. robin,
    gunner just got in touch with me about doing something from the queers for haiti. we should all talk. also, i've got TUSH tuesday at zuzu! as a possible venue/gathering place. and feb 17th CineMental isn't booked, so we could consider using it to show Maggots and Men or something as a memorial/fundraiser something...just some thoughts.

  2. I last heard that the SF memorial is actually going to be Tonight 1/19 at Dolores Park.
