Please join us at Galapagos on the evening of Sunday December 9th to celebrate the life of Brandon Lacy Campos.
Brandon's life as an activist, poet, novelist and friend left a legacy of love and passion. Brandon's belief in justice, love, truth honesty and his belief-based actions brought everyone who knew him closer to truth and light. In his honor, we will sing, laugh and dance in the space created by Brandon's spirit.
We ask that people bring their best selves and their brightest gear!! Brandon loved color and laughter and accordingly, the evening will be a time for celebration and big love. If it's in your spirit, please wear bright colors in solidarity.
There will be an altar set up to honor and celebrate his life and spirit. Feel free to bring items to share on the altar to empower Brandon's presence and our connection to him.
