This is heartbreaking. The names of the 22 casualties of the terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, are being released one by one. Our sadness deepens as the brutal number of fatalities are given faces, humanizing this horrific tragedy that took away the lives of many people, especially young ones. One of the latest victims the Manchester Police have confirmed dead is 29-year-old out gay man Martyn Hett.

His best friend, Russell Hayward, tweeted the news:

“We got the news last night that our wonderful, iconic and beautiful Martyn didn’t survive. He left the world exactly how he lived, centre of attention. I’m in a really bad way so please forgive if I don’t reply. Thankfully I have his wonderful and amazing friends to keep each other strong. I love you Martyn. I always will.”

Earlier today, his brother, who initially posted search efforts for Martyn Hett, also confirmed the loss.

Taking a quick look into his life on social media, Hett was a person who lived life out loud.
