Too much for me to think it is a coincidence.
Simple. The story is not true.
One gay member of TUCC was murdered. Another gay TUCC member died after a long and well chronicled illness (AIDS). Another gay black man was murdered in the same time frame but nobody has ever shown any connection to TUCC or the other dead men. And, his own mother stated that she moved out of the house that she shared with him because of the random, dangerous sexual partners he was bringing home.
