The group Birmingham Against LGBTQI+ Hate has organised a vigil to honour the victims of the Colorado Springs Club Q attack, which includes the five people who were sadly murdered; Daniel Davis Aston (28), Kelly Loving (40), Ashley Paugh (35), Derrick Rump (38) and Raymond Green Vance (22).

The vigil will be held outside the Nightingale Club on Kent Street in the gay village on Friday, November 25 from 6-7pm. The event will include speeches, a two-minute silence, and “a celebration of those whose lives were ruthlessly taken from our community”.

It is open to all who wish to show solidarity and people are welcome to bring banners, signs, placards and flags. For more information, visit the event page on Facebook.

“Hate attacks against the LGBTQ+ community are on the rise, homophobia and transphobia is on the rise, we need to stand up united against hate!”, explains the group Birmingham Against LGBTQI+ Hate.
