14 June, 2016 - by Seán Lynch


Sinn Féin MLA Sean Lynch has said she will be at this afternoon's vigil at City Hall to support the victims of the Orlando mass shooting. 

The Sinn Féin equality spokesperson said; 

"The vile attack on the LGBT community in Orlando on Sunday night has shocked and horrified people across the world. 

"It is important that we send out a strong message that we cherish the LGBT community and stand with them in the face of such bigotry. 

"I will be attending this evening’s vigil at 5.30pm Belfast City Hall alongside party colleagues and I am encouraging as many people as possible to come along. 

"Sinn Féin will continue to stand in solidarity with the LGBT community and oppose all forms of homophobia, racism, sexism, and discrimination."
