A bisexual Alabama teen was found dead just a few days after telling his mother he thought someone was trying to kill him.

19-year-old Nicholas Hawkins made a frantic call to his mother and told her that acquaintance Joshua Adam Reese was trying to kill him. Three days later, Hawkins was found shot to death and Reese was arrested and being held as a person of interest in the crime.

The New Civil Rights Movement breaks it down:

Reese had been free on $50,000 bail after being charged with attempted murder in 2013, when he was accused of hitting a man over the head with a gun and trying to shoot him, according to AL.com. Reese has not yet been charged in connection with Hawkins’ death, and it’s unclear whether the teen’s sexual orientation was a motive for the murder.

Hawkins came out as bisexual in high school, according to BuzzFeed News, but later dropped out due to bullying, AL.com reported. He was weeks from earning his GED and planned to pursue a career in cosmetology.

“I know anybody who met him knows the person that he was, the bubbly personality he had,” Hawkins’ brother, Jacob, said at a candlelight vigil Wednesday night, according to AL.com.

Video of the candlelight vigil is below.

We hope the family of Nicholas Hawkins gets the justice they deserve, and want to remind all of you to be safe out there.

by Graham Gremore September 28, 2016

Prepare to be absolutely mesmerized. Because space is gay, ya’ll. The good folks over at Planting Peace, the same group who created the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, attached a rainbow flag to a high-altitude balloon and sent it way, way up into the atmosphere.
