An LGBTQ+ broadcaster is set to hold a minute’s silence to remember the life of trans teenager Brianna Ghey.

The 16-year-old was found with stab wounds in a park in Cheshire last week and died at the scene.

Vigils have taken place across the country, including in Brighton, to commemorate her life and stand against violence towards trans people.

Gaydio, which broadcasts on FM and DAB in Brighton and Hove, is among several LGBTQ+ radio stations to take part in a minute’s silence at 11am tomorrow.

Kriss Herbert-Noble, Gaydio’s network content manager, said: “We felt it important to work across the LGBTQ+ radio sector, showing that as a community we stand together against hate.

“Trans people face daily challenges and our role is to stand up and highlight these stories and voices.

“This event, in particular, has reverberated across the community and it’s right we take a stand and remember the life of a bright, young trans person.”
