A vigil is to be held in Southampton on Friday (February 17th) in memory of murdered teenager Brianna Ghey.
The event will take place from 6pm at the Peace Fountain in East (Andrews) Park, near Brunswick Place in the city centre.
Sixteen-year-old Brianna was stabbed to death on Saturday in Linear Park in Cheshire. Two fifteen-year-old have been arrested in connection with her murder.
Brianna was transgender. There has been outcry at authorities stating that the murder was not a hate crime as well as at a number of media reports misgendering the teenager and referring to her by her deadname – the name she was given prior to transitioning.
