Support free speech - protest on 8th February

Printer-friendly version

Please note: the protest has now taken place, and was covered by BBC News amongst other media organisations. 

On Thursday 8th February, Core Issues Trust is due to premiere Voices of the Silenced, a new documentary film giving a voice to people who voluntarily seek help to move away from homosexual behaviours and feelings.

But after a campaign from LGBT newspaper PinkNews, Vue Cinemas has turned their back on Core Issues Trust at the last minute and cancelled the booking.

Andrea Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, commented:

“This is fundamentally a free speech issue. As usual, a minority of gay activists use threats and intimidation to shut down any opposing views. Tragically, they can’t tolerate the truth that there are significant numbers of men and women who have no wish to remain in a gay lifestyle and seek help to leave it."

“Ironically, the actions of Pink News and Vue cinema illustrate the point of the film. The Voices of the Silenced are, in fact, being silenced.”
