We are sad to be sharing the news that Terry Wing, a long-time contributor to Gscene magazine, died this morning after a short battle with cancer.
Our condolences go out to his many friends and colleagues, and most particularly to the lights of his life, his beloved family. Daughter Ceri, Son-in-law Joe, and his two grandchildren.
Terry’s often acerbic/hilarious contributions, under the title Rita’s Snatches were a staple of Gscene for many years.
His involvement in the community stretched from setting up St John’s Ambulance Regency Division to being in integral part of organising Brighton & Hove Pride, under various leaderships, for 25 years.
Paul Kemp, from Brighton & Hove Pride, said this today: “I’m really sad to hear of Terry’s passing. He was a dedicated Pride volunteer from the early days right up to 2015, managing the Community Parade.
“He’s a well know scene character, always willing to step up to support our local community events and fundraising. He’ll be sincerely missed.”
