On Wednesday night, June 15, Dignity/Washington organized an interfaith vigil to mourn those murdered at the Pulse nightclub inĀ Orlando. An estimated 2,000 people gathered in Dupont Circle to hear reflections and prayers from about 20 leaders of various faith traditions and faith communities throughout the Washington, DC area. After 102 seconds of silence — one for each of those killed and wounded — the names of the 49 victims were read aloud with the crowd responding “Presente!”. Overall, it was a wonderful night of solidarity and love among the area’s faith and LGBTQ and allies communities.

Many local news media were there to cover the event. See their articles here below:
