Organisers of Birmingham Pride have today announced that a one minute silence will take place before the start of the festival’s Carnival Parade in Victoria Square.

The one minute silence honours the 22 people whose lives were taken, and 50 people injured during Monday’s attack in Manchester, including 29-year-old Martyn Hett, who was announced as one of the victims earlier today and had many friends from across the Midlands LGBT community.

Martyn was due to go on a two month holiday to the United States this week. Working in public relations, Martyn had a strong social media following and was well known for his love of Coronation Street and his Dierdrie Barlow tattoo.

Birmingham Pride’s Carnival Parade is set to start at 12pm from Victoria Square. For more information about Birmingham Pride, visit www.birminghampride.com.
