An LGBTQ+ activist group has called for Britain to become a republic after the Queen’s death.
In a statement following yesterday’s announcement of the Queen’s death, Reclaim Pride Brighton called for an end to the “oppressive system” and expressed hope that “full-scale decolonization efforts” will take place.
“The only pride you can find in the monarchy is to see it die,” the group said.
The only pride to be found in monarchy is watching it die.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the hope that this oppressive system will end and that a full scale decolonization effort will take place.

Thousands of people have flocked to Buckingham Palace to express their sadness at the death of the Queen and some shook King Charles III. hand when he arrived at the palace this afternoon.
Floral tributes were also made outside the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, with flags flown at half-mast over the city and country.
The new king is expected to address the nation for the first time as monarch at 6pm tonight.
