“The Rainbow Flags in historic Boystown WEEP at half mast today. Because we lost Caesar Torres.” Duran posted on his Facebook Timeline. “Friend to so many of us. The HERE Lounge. The Revolver. The nightlife in Weho. Companion. Laughter. Good times. Don’t ever think that we are not all Interconnected [sic] in this time and space in West Hollywood. Some of us don’t have biological families anymore . So we created family. Caesar – you did that. You created a family. And we are broken hearted at losing you and wondering why? RIP. We grieve for you deeply. We care for one another now. And the City weeps.”
