Under The Brolly LIVE – Episode 5
For our fifth episode we remember the people killed and wounded in a mass shooting inside Pulse. It sent a shockwave touching the hearts and souls of LGBT+ people across the world.
On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States. Orlando Police Department officers shot and killed him after a three-hour standoff.
On 18th June 2016 the MyUmbrella team in it’s very first year of operation with support from the trustees put on a vigil at Reading Town Hall Square.

In these unprecedented times, we at MyUmbrella LGBT+ feel that it is now even more important than ever to stay connected and entertained to maintain a healthy mind and to stay positive and sadly with nearly all Pride events in 2020 looking like they will be either postponed or cancelled, we know many of you will feel a major part of your social life will be affected this summer.
So while we may not be able to run our workshops and attend our stalls like normal, we have decided to bring you the next best thing! Our hard-working volunteers live streaming Under The Brolly LIVE to discuss LGBT+ identities, issues, share experiences and interact with you lovely, lovely people.
