UK: Marking Ramadan with meal at Pride in London festival

The capital’s LGBT and Muslim  communities will meet to mark Ramadan as part of this year’s Pride in London festival.

The Big Gay Iftar, at St Andrew’s Church in Southwark, will see participants join in the traditional Islamic sunset evening meal. Pride in London said the event on June 24, open to anyone, will allow people “to talk to one another, learn about each others’ faiths, cultures and sexualities and spread some love.”

The inaugural Big Gay Iftar took place last year in response to the killing of 49 people in the Pulse nightclub shootings in Orlando by an Islamic State sympathiser. This year’s expanded meeting is expected to be even more popular. Read more via Evening Standard
