Friends,

Thank you for supporting our fundraiser to support Andre Gray. As you know, we launched it to create a reward fund for information in his disappearance. He has since been found and laid to rest while those responsible face trials.

We are shifting gears now to a memorial phase - we want Andre's life story and his life as an openly bi man of color to continue resonating even as the attention turns to the lurid details of the crime and the perpetrators.

We have set up a new page to help raise funds to pay for a memorial park bench in honor of Andre and his beloved dog, Boss. You can read all of the details here: https://www.crowdrise.com/rememberandre

Thank you again for your support!

Hello once again from Pittsburgh. Thank you for your ongoing support of Andre Gray and his family & friends. Yesterday, our local police formally charged another local man with Andre's murder. You can read more details at the link below.

We are planning a vigil in Pittsburgh for late April. The fundraiser continues while there is still a need for tips and leads, but also to focus on community based work to support Andre's friends and colleagues.

Your support is amazing to me - thank you.

We wanted to let you know that we've contributed the current donations to Andre's funeral expenses. He will be buried Saturday. You can find more details below.

We have also learned that Andre identified as bisexual. BiNET USA has joined our fundraising team and asked us to increase our goal in order to build up both the reward fund (this is still an active homicide investigation with no arrests) and to raise funds to support local efforts with young gay, bi and trans men of color. We will begin that work on Monday - the work to honor Andre's life.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Friends - I want to again thank you for your support of Andre Gray. Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Police revealed that they had recovered Andre's body and filed homicide charges against someone who was already incarcerated in the Allegheny County jail. You can read more details here: http://newpittsburghcourieronline.com/2015/03/26/body-of-andre-gray-missing-lawrenceville-man-found-arrest-made-hours-later/

As you can imagine, Andre's family is grieving even as they appreciate getting news and being able to move toward closure. I will share other details as they become available.

This fund will remain open for the time being - I have renamed it the Andre Gray Fund. If you have questions, please email me pghlesbian@gmail.com.

Please keep Andre's family in your thoughts and prayers.
