In memory of Lucy Meadows: Vigil Against Monstering.
Following the tragic death of popular primary school teacher Lucy Meadows last Tuesday, a ‘vigil against monstering’, in Lucy’s memory, has been planned to take place tomorrow evening, (25th March 2013) outside the Daily Mail offices in Kensington.
Online anger has being growing after the emergence of an article written by Daily Mail columnist Richard Littlejohn.
Campbell had previously tweeted: “I hope journalists are doorstepping Dacre Murdoch and Littlejohn for their reaction to Lucy Meadows suicide. The Mail really is scum.”
David Allen Green, legal advisor to Trans Media Watch, a charity for transgender people, told BBC Radio 4’s The World Tonight: “There is no public interest in the story whatsoever. The only part of the story which seems significant is that there is a gender reassignment, what used to be called a sex change.”
“In a way, tabloids treat transgendered people the way they would treat anybody if they could get away with it.”
We at TheGayUK stand strongly against any forms of discrimination. The T in LGBT needs to be supported as strongly the LGB. We must all stand together to change attitudes.
Details of the vigil:
Monday 25th March at 6.30pm.
Outside Daily Mail HQ,
Nearest Underground station: High Street Kensington (District and Circle)
