#Justice4Gemmel and All of Ed Buck's Victims

$8,827 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 170 people in 21 months
This is the official fundraising page for #Justice4Gemmel and All of Ed Buck's Victims.

The Fund supports the quest for justice for all of Ed Buck's victims.

The Fund supports the numerous young Black gay men who have stepped forward with horrendous and troubling allegations against Ed Buck recounting similar stories about a man who they say has a Tuskegee Experiment like fetish which includes shooting crystal meth into young Black men that he picks up off the street or via dating hookup websites.

The fund also supports the family of Gemmel Moore to travel between Texas and California to push for justice for Gemmel Moore and other victims of Ed Buck’s. Donations help to cover travel expenses, ground transportation, room and board and legal fees.


Gemmel's Story:

Gemmel “Juelz” Moore was a Black gay man who died tragically in the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic major donor Ed Buck on Saturday, July 27, 2017.

Gemmel’s death was immediately classified as an accidental meth overdose by the Los Angeles County Coroner but after his journal was published documenting his relationship with Ed Buck, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was forced to open a homicide investigation.  Unfortunately, by that time, much of the evidence in Ed Buck's apartment has been destroyed or removed.

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.”

On July 26, 2018, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey declined to file any criminal charges against Ed Buck in the death of Gemmel Moore.

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.


On Monday, January 7, 2019, Timothy Dean died in Ed Buck's apartment of an apparent overdose.  The official cause of death is still pending.

After a second death in 18 months at Buck's apartment, the Sheriff's Department is reopening the investigation into Gemmel Moore's death.
