People celebrating the life of Gscene editor James Ledward at his funeral next Saturday are being asked to put away the black and dress colourfully.
Mr Ledward died last week following a short illness aged just 65.
A funeral and celebration of his life will take place on Saturday, 19 October midday in St Mary’s Church, St James’s Street, Kemp Town.
The funeral cortege will make its way up St James’s Street from 11.40am.
It will be followed by a private cremation for family members only.
As well as the colourful dress code, James requested no flowers.
Instead, a Justgiving page has been set up in James’ memory, and all donations will go to the The Brighton Rainbow Fund which James established ten years ago to support local LGBTQ organisations and support groups.
Gscene said: “We hope as many people as possible be in attendance to give James the community send-off he deserves.”
