First Published Sep 09 2011 12:00 pm • Last Updated Sep 09 2011 12:00 pm

Three gay men have reported being beaten and called anti-gay slurs in the last two weeks, including Dane Hall in Salt Lake City. These are among community events that have been planned in response to those attacks:

Vigil » City of Hope Salt Lake will lead a fireside vigil and a glow-light march to raise awareness of and condemn violence against LGBT people. Dane Hall will speak and Salt Lake City Police will address safety concerns and how to report tips on Friday, Sept. 9, 8-10 p.m., at Liberty Park, corner near 900 South and 700 East, Salt Lake City. For more information, email pastors@cohslc.org.
