An appeal for a lasting memorial to Terry Sweet and Bernard Hawken, two men who were a victim of a homophobic attack in November 1995.
by Pride in Plymouth in Plymouth, England, United Kingdom
I remember being 15 when this happened and it made me so fearful of coming out. An important story to be remembered and honoured. A wonderful idea. Well done to all involved and the brilliant Pride in Plymouth.
It is so heart-warming to see so many people donating to this brilliant cause. It's a reminder that love and hope exist. Good luck and keep going with all the brilliant work you do.
I’ve lived in Plymouth for 20 years now, I do remember hearing about this murder when I moved here and being shocked and appalled. I hope Plymouth will keep moving forward. A memorial is important for Mr Sweet and Mr Hawken and their family.
