New York City’s 46th annual Pride March was bound to be even more political and urgent than usual. In the aftermath of the Orlando shootings at a gay nightclub during the weekly Latino night, feelings of solidarity, of mourning, and of resistance were more present than ever among this year’s marchers.
There’ll Be a Vigil for the Orlando Shooting Victims Tonight at Stonewall Inn
There will be a formal vigil tonight at 7 p.m. at the Stonewall Inn for the victims of yesterday’s mass shooting in Orlando at the gay nightclub Pulse. Speakers including governor Andrew Cuomo and mayor Bill De Blasio as well as leaders and activists from the LGBTQ community will address mourners and “call on Congress to stop standing in the way of reasonable gun control laws.”
