PHOTOS: A Gallery Of Orlando Vigils Around The World

One positive to come out of tragedy is the way the entire world comes together in support, grief and love — it lets the wounded community know they’re not alone. The Orlando shooting is no exception. We’ve compiled a collection of photos of vigils and rallies from around the world to help show a larger world who are mourning and living alongside the LGBTQ community.

NYC Pride is next Sunday. I've heard there are some who are scared to go this year because there is a chance that what could have happened to LA pride might happen to NYC pride. To that I say I understand, and you have every right to want to be safe. BUT. Many of us will still be marching along with myself and many others of my friends. Pride is about marching in the face of adversity, and standing up when people of hate are trying so hard to keep us down. March for those 59!! 59…oh my gosh…do it for them, do it for their family, do it for the future queers of this world! We are here! We are love! We are HUMAN! We will not be silenced by hate! Not now not ever! #love #pride #gay #staystrong #gaypride #nycpride #standup #marchon #beyou #queer #orlando #weareorlando #lgbtqia #lgbtqiapride
