Across America and around the world, people are coming together to honor those who died and suffered injuries in a massive attack on June 12 in Orlando, Florida. Candlelight vigils, marches, and gatherings honor the innocent lives lost here. Early Sunday morning at Pulse, a popular LGBT nightclub, about 300 people celebrated a Latin-themed event with dancing, singing, and community solidarity. Their jubilee ended when a gunman fired into the crowd, killing 49 people and injuring 53. This shooting rampage is now the worst attack in American history.
We Are Orlando
International landmarks are ablaze in rainbow colors, showing solidarity with Orlando, such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris; the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center in New York City; and the Town Hall and Harbour Bridge in Sydney, Australia.
Orlando support rallies and marches have taken place in Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver, with rainbow colors waving for LGBT advocacy. Thousands gathered in London’s Soho district to pay tribute to the Orlando victims on Old Compton Street, which teemed with people walking in solidarity. Across the United States, candlelit vigils and gatherings are bringing cities and communities together.
YouCaring has created a fundraiser for all the Orlando victims who suffered injuries and for the families of those who were killed in the attack. All donations will be given to them, and no amount is too small. YouCaring believes that no one should have to go through hardship alone.
