#GSPodcast Theme by Dorian Silk & The MCH
In a show of solidarity with the people of Orlando and with LGBT people everywhere, hundreds gathered at Canal Street, Manchester today. Similar gatherings also took place in a number of cities across the UK to mourn the dead and to support the living.
Canal Street in my home city of Manchester is a sort of hub for the local LGBT community and more popularly known as ‘the gay village’ – housing a number of gay bars and restaurants.
Full information is yet to be known about the tragic shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando. Early reports suggest that Omar Mateen killed 50 people and injured over 50 others in what appears to be an attack motivated by Islamic fundamentalism.
Thanks to the good work of twitter user @ahmedaa1k, I was able to show you what was being said in Arabic by some people about atheists a while back. The same twitter user has also translated some of the Arabic language responses to the Orlando shooting. It’s not good news either.
