In 1984, a Bangor man was killed because he was gay.

Tuesday evening, on the anniversary of his death, a vigil will be held to honor the memory of Charlie Howard.

It will take place outside the Brick Church on Union Street in Bangor at 7 p.m.

Those taking part will then walk in silence to the State Street bridge where the 23-year-old Howard was attacked.

Howard drowned after a group of teens threw him into the Kenduskeag Stream.

Those who can't attend tomorrow's event can view it on Facebook:
