RIP Richard

RIP Richard

Last weekend we spotted this rainbow flag together with various other items all with a connection to a RICHARD O'BRIEN.

We have since learned that he was a familiar face around Thomas St in the Northern Quarter and was homeless.

Sadly he died and several people felt the need to pay this homage to him.

Against the background of Pandemic and war, we thought it worthy to highlight the obvious kindness shown towards Richard.

RIP.
