VigilYou will have heard the tragic news which came from Florida last weekend, that a gunman opened fire in the Pulse nightclub, killing 49 innocent people. Tributes have been made around the world, and Hull has been no different. On Wednesday June 15 2016, at around 6:30pm, the LGBT community came together for a touching vigil next to the cenotaph in the City Centre.
Flags were flown and rested on the ground with the rainbow colours on them, people fell silent and tears were shed in remembrance of all those innocent people who lost their lives that night, for no other reason tan being themselves.
Kingston upon Hull North MP, Diana Johnson, also sent a message of support, saying “This shocking terrorist attack on embers of the LGBT Community in Orlando was motivated by sheer hatred and bigotry. The thoughts of every decent person in Hull will be with the families of those killed and the injured. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of the United States in condemning and opposing those capable of such violent and murderous and crimes against our modern, diverse and free society” Hear hear Dana, well said
