According to the Mirror, Portasio expressed his gratitude for the “overwhelming outpouring of support and love” he has received since O’Grady’s passing. He also confirmed that there would be a chance for the public, whom O’Grady “cared a lot about,” to pay their respects. Portasio has requested that locals keep disruption to a minimum during the procession.

O’Grady’s Legacy

O’Grady was a TV icon and LGBTQ+ rights campaigner, with a career that spanned over three decades. His best friend, actor Amanda Mealing, said that O’Grady would have wanted his funeral to be “full of laughter.” She added that he would not have wanted people to be “mawkish and morose,” stating that he would have said: “I don’t care, I won’t be here! Do whatever you want.” In a 2021 Guardian interview, O’Grady was asked how he wanted to be remembered, to which he simply replied: “I don’t care, because I won’t be here.”
