Rainbow casket for deceased Nigel Shelby
Shelby’s loved ones used the money to arrange a very special farewell: his casket was decorated with multiple pictures of the deceased teenager, pastel rainbow colours and butterflies. Family members were also seen wearing Pride colours to honour Nigel.
His mother, Camika Shelby, said the following: ‘‘I don’t want him to be remembered as a kid who was bullied for being gay and who took his own life. He was so much more than that.’’ According to the obituary, Shelby loved theatre and history, and wanted to become an activist for the LGBT+ community.
