Remembering Orlando: Multiple Houston Vigils For Pulse 1 Year Anniversary
(HOUSTON) — As Houston’s annual Pride month kicks into full gear the LGBT community is gearing up to remember the victims lost nearly a year ago. The mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando shocked the nation and world when 49 people were murdered in a LGBT nightclub.
As the one-year anniversary approaches, the Houston LGBT community and allies plan to honor the anniversary and those lost with multiple vigils to be held in Montrose.
Turn Texas Blue and Black Lives Matter have teamed up to honor Orlando with a vigil planned on the eve of the one-year anniversary. “Stand with Orlando Vigil—One Year Later” will be held on June 11 at Hermann Park.
The second vigil to honor those of Pulse Nightclub in Orlando will be held at the Montrose Center on June 12. The event, held one year to the day, has been organized by the Mayor’s LGBT Advisory Committee.
