In response to the suicide of David Hernandez, a 16-year-old junior at East Hampton High School, David Kilmnick, chief executive officer of Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth, has organized a community forum to take place at the school on Tuesday.
Participants in the 6 p.m. event will discuss the possibility of establishing a G.L.B.T. community center on the East End.
A dinner, party, and silent auction at Ashawagh Hall in Springs on Wednesday will raise money to help Tim Lee, a Springs photographer and party lighting designer who has been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer.
The 6 to 11 p.m. event will include performances by Nancy Atlas and Friends, Matt Dauch and other members of the band Little Head Thinks, Bobbi Terzi, and drummers from the Bastards of Boom. Keith Leaf, a fire juggler, will also perform, as will Evan Thomas and members of his fire-juggling troupe, the Fiery Sensations.
