A vigil was held in Liverpool yesterday in memory of Michael Causer – a gay teenager who was brutally murdered at a house party in 2008.

Following his death Liverpool’s LGBT community rallied around the Causer family, to raise money for legal and funeral expenses.

A number of speakers spoke at the vigil, including the Chief Constable, Cllr Dave Hanratty and Jnr Lord Mayor Zac Wilde.

The LGBT Choir Liverpool also sang at the event.


Michael Causer’s parents, Marie and Mike set up the Michael Causer Foundation with the aim to “provide education, motivation and accommodation for young LGBT people”,  like their son.
