Remembering Nick AaronsonMonday, October 31st, 2011
Today, the NOH8 Campaign mourns the loss of a member of the NOH8 Family. 27-year-old Nick Aaronson, who attended the NOH8 Open Photo Shoot in Scottsdale, Arizona in July of 2010, was found dead in Mexico City this weekend; the victim of an apparent homicide (a suspect is currently in custody).
Nick was a Phoenix-based Flight Attendant for US Airways who, in addition to his support for the NOH8 Campaign, was also an advocate for the Human Rights Campaign and the fight for marriage equality.
We at the NOH8 Campaign greatly value each and every face behind our campaign, and we are deeply saddened to lose another member of our community under such tragic circumstances. We send our deepest condolences to Nick's friends and family during this difficult time.
