Members of Birmingham’s LGBTQ community have expressed their shock and sadness at the news that local DJ Spencer Cormell, aged 35, passed away on the evening of 20 November. A regular on the scene, Spencer DJed at Birmingham Pride and numerous gay venues, including Missing, The Village Inn, Sidewalk, Glamorous and The Bullring Tavern.

A post-mortem examination will be conducted to acertain the cause of death.

At the time of going to print, the cause of Spencer’s death remains unknown.
Tributes poured in thick and fast, including from Gareth Scratcherd, former owner of Angel’s Bar (now Sidewalk), who said: “Such sad news but such happy and fond memories and some very blurry moments too.”

Keith Perks from Equator said: “I am totally shocked. I have been your friend for so long. You never failed to make me laugh. We had fun and now we have tears.’


CJ Turner-Moss, manager of Clone Zone, said: “A massive shock to everyone. Spencer was a regular visitor in store and an all-round lovely guy. He will be missed by everyone.”
