Brighton vigil to remember victims of Reading Attack, tomorrow @ 3pm.

Gscene Editorial Team June 27, 2020

Join Gscene, the Rainbow Hub and the LGBT+ Community Safety Forum for a Vigil to remember the victims of the Reading Attack tomorrow, Sunday, June 28, at Dorset Gardens, Brighton from 3pm. Please wear a face mask and observe social distancing.

It has been a week since James Furlong, Joe Ritchie-Bennett and David Wails, all members of the LGBTQ+ community, lost their lives in the senseless attack in Forbury Gardens in Reading. We ask you to join us in an act of community solidarity with the Reading LGBTQ community, the families of the three men and the wider LGBTQ community of the UK.

Please bring an LGBTQ flag or similar.

Join us to remember these men and send our love to those injured in the attack, and also send love and strength to our friends and allies in Reading. If you’re not able to make it in person, we will be streaming the Vigil live on the Gscene Facebook page.


A  fund-raising appeal from Reading Pride to raise funds to help support the families for funeral costs, raise a permanent tribute within Forbury Gardens to remember this tragic loss of lives has already reached £12.500. You can donate here:
