An evangelical Christian group is reportedly suing a string of UK entertainment venues and city councils after they axed public appearances by anti-LGBTQ preacher Franklin Graham. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) is taking legal action against venues in Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham and Wales, openDemocracy reports. BGEA had planned eight events in the UK between May and October this year, but they were cancelled following backlash from LGBTQ+ people. News of the legal action has emerged as part of a larger investigation by UK-based political site openDemocracy, which claims the group spent $23 million furthering their agenda in Europe between 2007 and 2014. They say they have “confirmed via public court records that BGEA is currently a claimant in at least two ongoing ‘breach of contract’ court cases in the UK.
