WEST HOLLYWOOD — Friends of Matt Palazzolo, a well-known West Hollywood resident and activist in the LGBTQ community, scheduled a celebration of life for next month at West Hollywood Park.

Friends have created a Facebook page, “Matthew Palazzolo ‘Celebration of Life,” to help organize the event, and a GoFundMe page to raise money for the event.
The announcement said the celebration of life will include “a number of speakers from various parts of Matt’s life, a moment of silence, a video in memoriam, a photo collage, a short video retrospective of clips of Matt, and ending the Celebration with an actual celebration, possibly some dancing and definitely some drinks at a nearby bar.”
Palazzolo’s friends are invited to submit photos or videos of him for presentation at the ceremony via a DropBox link.
“We want photos and videos that are silly, happy, laughing, crying EVERYTHING,” the announcement said.
