Park Square looking north-east
Description:
26th May 2006 View looking north-east across Park Square in the springtime. Park Square was developed between 1788 and 1810 and there are many renovated Georgian buildings to be seen including these in Park Square, north. This side of the square has some of the finest examples, most of which are now offices. The dome of the Town Hall is also in view. Since 2017, Park Square has been the location of an annual candlelit vigil on 20th November to mark the international Transgender Day of Remembrance, commemorating the lives of people killed as a result of transphobia. Members of the trans community join together to grieve, speak out, and share solidarity, while singers from the Yorkshire Trans Choir have also performed songs of sorrow and protest. The choir was founded by Claye Bowler, a member of Non-Binary Leeds, in 2018 to provide a space for trans voices, which do not always easily fit the ‘soprano, alto, tenor and bass’ model of existing choirs. They meet and practise weekly at the University of Leeds. Photograph courtesy of James W. Bell.
