Order of Service, Mark Jenkins


About this object

This Order of Service is from the Service of Thanksgiving for the Life of Mark Anthony Jenkins, 2nd November 2016, held at Anfield Crematorium.

Delivering the eulogy, Liverpool actress Margi Clark described how, when he was younger Mark had received a barrage of homophobic abuse. Patiently Mark had waited for them to finish and responded,
“Yes, I’m gay and you’re straight… and I hope you have loads of kids and you’re always skint at Christmas!”

Mark, as flamboyant lead promoter of Garlands nightclub, gained loyal friends, fans, and legendary status across the city.
