18th June - Remembrance Vigil for those killed in Orlando

Several members of our Outreach team supported the vigil organised by Reading Pride which was held in Forbury Square, Reading. The event was really well attended and our outreach team spoke to members of the public affected by the shootings of members of the LGBT+ community in Orlando. There were  several speakers including Sarah Hacker, the Mayor of Reading, a representative of Stop Hate and Andy Adams, the chair of Reading Pride.  Emma our Outreach Director said "It was a very moving event, where members of the LGBT+ community came together to remember those killed in Orlando. Hearing the names and ages of those who had lost their life was a very powerful reminder that the LGBT+ community is vulnerable to hate and intolerance".
