Candlelight Vigil in Remembrance of Pulse Orlando Shooting
WHEN: Monday, June 13, 2016
WHERE: Seville Square Park
TIME: 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The Gulf Coast community is invited to a memorial candlelight vigil for the victims of Sunday morning’s attack at the Pulse night club in Orlando, FL. The shooting marks the deadliest mass domestic shooting in the nation’s history.
“While no one would ever conceive of PRIDE celebrations being marked by tragedy, we are still committed to equality as a civil right and eradicating hate against the LGBTQ+ community”, Ashley Rupp, STAMPED Film Fest Board President.
We will gather at 6:00 pm at Seville Square. Candles with holders will be provided. Feel free to bring lighters to help in that regard. We will come together to grieve and remember our family members and allies that were lost or who have lost someone they love. This will be a moment of solidarity.
This event is sponsored by STAMPED Pensacola’s LGBT Film Festival, UWF Lambda Coalition, STRIVE, Pensacola PRIDE (Gay Grassroots) and #FROMPENSACOLA.
