Countdown to the LAST VIC PARTY #10 - Vanity speaks at IDAHO vigil

We're very proud of oor Vanity Von Glow for speaking at last night's International Day Against Homophobia vigil on the steps of the Buchanan Galleries! Well done too to Stewart McDonald and Nancy Lashes (pics by Michael James, natch). We'd like to think it's our sister's fierceness that influenced Hillary Clinton to back IDAHO. She made this statement:

"In every part of the world, men and women are persecuted and attacked because of who they are or whom they love. Homophobia, transphobia and the brutal hostility associated with them are often rooted in a lack of understanding of what it actually means to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). So to combat this terrible scourge and break the cycle of fear and violence, we must work together to improve education and support those who stand up against laws that criminalize love and promote hate. As we mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia this May 17, let us resolve to redouble our efforts."

There's more info on IDAHO here on the offical website, let's make EVERY day an international day against homophobia!
