Meeting Against Hate: New Zealand Terrorist Attack

We woke this morning to hear the shocking news of a terrorist attack in New Zealand that targeted two Mosques and killed 49 people.

Levenshulme always stands against hatred. Our diverse community comes together to express its revulsion against and utter rejection of violence and hatred. Levenshulme Pride started in response to an act of hatred. We offer our sympathy and support for those dealing with an act of aggression and violence against another minority group.

Let’s stand together against islamophobia and the murder of Muslims. Let’s come together in a community gathering against hate and to mark an horrific act of terror.

We are all equal. We must all support each other when any of us is targeted with hatred.

Manchester Parents Group is a voluntary organisation which supports families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons (LGBT). We are all parents of lesbian, gay and bisexual sons and daughters and understand the confusion and questions you may have when when you first found out your child is gay.

We have accepted our children’s sexuality or identity, and want to help other parents and family to accept their lesbian and gay children.

We understand that it can be daunting to tell you parents about your sexuality so we help gays and lesbians to tell parents about their sexuality.
