I first met Julia in 2000 and was a bit in awe of the woman who had set me on my life path many years before. We became good friends soon after and I helped her with stuff for the Hollywood group, the two Gayfests, her websites and other technical stuff. When she organised the first Benidorm Pride in 2011, she called on me to be her stage manager, and we had a great week in that October. In the last few years we kept in touch and had the occasional lunch to catch up as well. It's such a shame to see one of life's feisty, powerful, controversial, pioneering figures pass with so much yet to give. Rest well Julia. You will never be forgotten. x

A remarkable Lady, a pillar in the community. She got involved, stood up for what she believed in, fought with passion and won with soul. With thanks to incredible people like Julia so many are able to stand proud and wave their flag of many colours with respect and honor. She gave the week a voice enabling so many to be seen, heard and understood. She fought secretly and publicly, rain or shine. Changing people's lives for the better. She lit our everlasting candle of hope and shielded it from the wind. Her generosity, belief and dedication gave many light in their darkest hour. Julia, not only our community but the rest of the world needs more people like you. Time for you to take your rest, sleep well knowing your honoured by so many.

Sarah and I met Julia in late 1979/early 1980. We had agreed to take part in the second documentary she was filming with David Pearson. What a complete breath of fresh air when she strolled into our house - the first member of our community who refused to be frightened. Such fun, so thoughtful, bright and intelligent, she made me laugh, and think, and ..... dance on the table in a Greek restaurant. Thank you for being such an important part of our lives.
Thank you so much for many fun nights in the 80’s when you DJ’d at the Manhattan bar in Chesterfield you gave us such a great time with your fab humour and wit! You are truly inspirational. RIP Julia❤️
Julia you were one of a kind, we met when you asked me to do the photography for Benidorm Pride and remained good friends. You will be missed by myself and thousands of people who’s life’s you changed. Keep causing havoc Luvvie. Lots of love Michael xxx
Time to rest now my dear friend your fight is over See you on the other side Love J xxxxx
