Bloodstained Men™ Parrish King Memorial and Protest

For Immediate Release: 03/06/2024

(JACKSONVILLE) – The Bloodstained Men & Their Friends will present a memorial and protest honoring Parrish King, a former Jacksonville City Council candidate who recently died from accidental fentanyl poisoning. 

The Bloodstained Men will share their message in Jacksonville on Sunday March 10, 2024, from 11 am to 3 pm at River City Marketplace, at the intersection of Airport Center Dr. and City Center Blvd. Parrish King’s funeral will follow at 5 pm at Chets Creek Church, 6625 Terry Rd, Jacksonville. 

Parrish King succumbed to an overdose of opioid street drugs on Thursday, February 22, 2024. He left his undated last will and testament taped to his closet door, speaking directly to his friends and the intactivist community:

“My only real last will is that everyone and anyone who has known me to be a friend or has respected me for who I am. My will is that you watch on YouTube, Eric Clopper’s video presentation lecture done in a play format at Harvard. The video is called ‘Sex and Circumcision: An American Love Story.’ It’s my last will that you watch this ASAP. Please put your phone away. Pay attention to the entire video. It is 2 hours long. If you cannot watch this, do not consider us friends in the slightest bit. This is my last will. I don’t condone the antics of some of his presentation tactics but the information he presents, along with the passion for the seriousness of this issue is what is important to me. After this, what are you going to do about it. It’s my hope you fight for me now that I’m gone.”

His sister has indicated that his final message was “just in case” because he knew the fatal risk of using drugs such as heroin and fentanyl. He had plans to attend her daughter’s birthday the day after his death, and had never expressed suicidal thoughts during his lengthy struggle with addiction, which he had experienced for a number of years. We are sharing this with his sister’s permission – she knows that he inspired many people during his lifetime and she also wants him to continue to be a source of motivation and warning about the risks of drug addiction. His sister and mother and cousin, along with other friends, will join us from 11 am to 3 pm for this memorial protest in honor of Parrish King’s life and his last wishes. After the protest, his funeral will be at 5:00 pm at Chets Creek Church, 6625 Terry Rd, Jacksonville.

All are welcome at our peaceful protests.
