This is the official fundraising page for #Justice4Gemmel.
Gemmel “Juelz” Moore was a Black gay man who died tragically in the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck. Gemmel’s death was immediately classified as an accidental meth overdose by the Los Angeles County Coroner but now homicide detectives are reexamining Moore’s death, based on additional information, sheriff’s officials announced. The additional information includes additional victims of Buck’s and Moore’s own journal entries documenting his relationship with Ed Buck.
In his journal, Moore wrote, “I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that,” a December entry reads. “Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted to the pain and fetish/fantasy.”
His last entry, dated Dec. 3, 2016 reads: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”
Gemmel loved life and lived every moment of it even through the ups and downs. He gained lifelong friendships across the country because of his genuine, humorous and loving personality.
He leaves behind his mother LaTisha Nixon, grandmother, brothers and sisters, including 9-year-old protégé Aniyah.
The #Justice4Gemmel fund is to help ease the financial burden during this tragic time for Gemmel’s mother. She's raising money to travel between Texas and California to push for justice for her son Gemmel and other victims of Ed Buck’s. Your donation will help to cover travel expenses, ground transportation, room and board and legal fees while she takes time off work.
If you could bless Ms. Nixon with a donation of any amount, it will be appreciated more than you know.
If you'd like to join her on this mission to get answers about her son's death please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When sharing Gemmel’s story please use the hashtags #Justice4Gemmel and #GemmelMoore.
The family appreciates your condolences and tributes from around the country. It warms their hearts to see how many lives Gemmel touched in his short 26 years.
May God bless you all.
