A coalition of Chicago Latino LGBT organizations and committees joined more than 20 cities across the U.S. to organize a candle light vigil for Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado, a 19-year-old who was brutally murdered in Puerto Rico Nov. 13. Chicago's rally was Sunday, Nov. 22 in Humboldt Park, a heavily Latino area of the city.
