A tribute concert for Gansuke

English is following...

昨日は、親友がんすけの命日。
彼へのトリビュート的なコンサート「GLAP」が開催され、9グループ/個人が参加し、とても良いイベントだった。

始まる前に、彼の写真がたくさん映し出され、また、彼がつくった曲を多くの出演者がカバーしていたこともって、なんだか久しぶりに彼に会えた気分になった。

僕にとって、来年のパレードを成功させることが、彼の思いに報いること。くじけそうになることがよくあるけど、もう少しがんばらなくちゃ。

November 7th is the anniversary of Gansuke's death.
(I haven't known "meinichi" is traslated in the phrase
"the anniversary of --'s death.")
He passed away two years ago.

Gansuke was my best friend.
He help me many times when I was in hardships.
He was a gifted system engineer and manager of companies,
vigorous gay activist and brilliant writer of songs on gay lives.
He was also one of a few persons
who come out his HIV positive status in Japan.

Yesterday, a concert for a tribute for him was held and
nine LGB music groups took part in and played.
Most of them covered the songs that Gansuke wrote.
I felt like that I met him after a long separation.
