Spread Love...

Today I received an email from Pride London about the horrific attack on Ian Baynham in Trafalgar Square and how this is now treated as a murder following the decision to turn off life support (see article HERE). Any attack is horrific but this took place in Trafalgar Square, which one would imagine to be one of the safest places in London!

In response to this recent attack, the rise in the number of homophobic attacks in London, and previous hate attacks, a vigil has been organised in Trafalgar Square for this Friday 30th October 2009, 8pm. The event is being organised by 17-24-30. Their aim for the vigil is to show the world that this anti-sociable behaviour is UNACCEPTABLE.

17-24-30 have said, "It's important that you join in, because this wasn't just a homophobic attack. It was an attack on everyone's right to walk through their city without fear of attack. This is about everyone, str8 and gay."

I'll try to make my way there to pay my respect to the victim and show my care and support for my community. So if any of you are in London on Friday night, please skip one drink and do the right thing!

And speaking of love, please tell me I'm not the only person who is in Crazy Love with the new sexy Michael Bublé? I've always loved his songs and his voice, but I love/want him even more after seeing his performance on The X Factor last night! Awww, he's just so CUTE!
