Vandals who defaced a gay theatre sign have been offered free tickets to see the show on the sign of which they wrote the word ‘shame’. Tom Ross-Williams, star of RUN, one of the event’s participants, invited the vandals to see the show for free just to let them know more about the people whose feelings they hurt. “When I saw the graffiti on the poster at JW3, I immediately thought that if these vandals saw the one man play RUN that I’m performing there, they would know that gay love is nothing to be ashamed of and that being homophobic is absurd… essentially what you’re doing is banning love. I’ve bought two tickets for the vandals who defaced the sign to see RUN on Wednesday night at JW3. The tickets will be at the box office waiting to be collected,” Tom told PinkNews, adding that there are many shapes of people – they are black and white, believers or atheists, gay or straight. And being LGBT and Jewish are not the concepts to exclude one another.
