Monday Memorial for Myra Ical: What You Need to Know

As of 9 PM, we have more than 160 confirmed attendees. This number does not account for all of those who are coming from the churches, membership organizations (GLBT Caucus, Pride Houston, HRC, NGLTF,etc) or the nonprofit organizations that will be in attendance. This vigil will likely be the largest TG action in Houston’s history.

“The Time For Silence Has Ended”

Please bring something to make a lot of noise!

  • Many City of Houston officials, local and national organizations as well as faith based organizations are making official statements about the Myra’s passing as well as the media’s treatment of her brutal murder.

  • A large condolence card will be available for attendees to sign. The card will be sent to Myra’s parents.

  • Candles will be provided.

  • We will have a limited number of whistles to hand out.

  • Attendees will be given a ribbon to wear around their arm or wrist.

  • Attendees are encouraged to bring home-made signs.

  • Parking is along the side streets.

  • After the vigil, attendees are encouraged to attend the Monday night TG support group and/or a post-event panel discussion, both located at 7:30 in the Havens Center located at 1827 West Alabama (about 2 miles from the vigil location and next to the Chocolate Bar).

    My thoughts and prayers are with Myra’s family. I wish her peace in her afterlife.

    I commend the organizations who have brought this tragedy out to light and to be covered in the media in a manner in which help is being asked.

    I saw the Ch 11 News coverage lead story on 01/24/10 10 pm newscast.

    I will not be able to make the vigil but will be thinking of her, her family/friends, and the entire Transgender Community.

    Regards,
    Robert Garcia
