Back in June, Jordan and I attended the annual NYC Pride Parade. It took place just two weeks after the horrific mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida in which 49 people were killed and dozens of others were injured. Yesterday (Monday, September 12) marks the 3-month anniversary of the massacre.
The parade was the biggest NYC has ever had. A record 32,000 marchers (last year saw 20,000) and over 400 groups participated.
At the very beginning, they commemorated the Pulse nightclub victims with a moment of silence. Later there were marchers dressed in white, displaying all the victims’ photos and names in a compelling tribute.
