Something inside so strong London Gay Men's Choir

10yrs since Soho nailbombs, Ian Baynham was viciously murdered in Trafalgar Sq last week in a homophobic attack.

Around 5-7,000 people attended this vigil called at short notice to protest at the attacks and to pay their respects. The air was both positive and political.

This beautiful song sung by the choir was beautifully placed and made the vigil feel very special. There was a lot of emotion; couples, lgbt or not, could all feel the emotion. I'm sure Ians family gained strength from the solidarity.

A two minute silence followed speeches by local figureheads and Ians family and friends, and a naming of all those murdered in homophobic attacks was read out.
