The march is to take place tomorrow in London.
On the 19th October, there will be a march against a no-deal Brexit, as organisers of the LGBT+ for People’s Vote believe that the Brexit plans currently offered by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, “poses risks to the LGBT+ community”. The LGBT+ for PV rally is in conjunction with the People’s Vote campaign.
A spokesperson for the LGBT+ for PV said, “LGBT+ people need to join the march because LGBT+ people are one of the communities that will be most impacted by Boris’ Brexit.
“The voting records and views towards the LGBT+ community from Johnson and his cabinet give no reassurance that Brexit will protect the LGBT+ community.
“That’s why it’s important to support a People’s Vote and make your voice heard tomorrow.” Lauren Pemberton-Nelson, Campaign Manager, LGBT+ for a People’s Vote.
Tomorrow from 10:30 AM
The LGBT+ rally, which will set off from in front of the Bomber Command Memorial in London, 10:30 AM, is due to take place just 12 days before Brexit is set to happen.
According to the group around 72 percent of LGBT+ people back a people’s vote.
THEGAYUK‘s own research from 2016 revealed that 82 per cent of its readers believed the UK to be better off remaining in the EU.
A note from the editor.
These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.
Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.
If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.
