HRC FloridaHRC is devastated by the mass shooting at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando. We join those around the world in mourning those we’ve lost and celebrating their lives. HRC has created an Online Vigil for the victims and survivors of the tragic Orlando attack. Join us and show the world that love conquers hate.

On June 9, 2017, HRC unveiled a monumental arti installation by world-renowned artist Megan Geckler in honor of pride and the one-year mark of the deadly Pulse attack. The tribute titled 49 uses 49 white fabric strips to represent the lives taken in Orlando. They are encircled by a rainbow structure, referencing not only the LGBTQ movement's iconic flag, but also the LGBTQ community's continuing embrace of those taken during the violence at Pulse.

Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBTQ equality in Florida alongside state and local groups and lawmakers. Find out more about what HRC is doing for LGBTQ equality in Florida and how you can get involved with the Central Florida and South Florida communities.

The existing patchwork of legal protections for LGBTQ people in the United States leaves millions subject to uncertainty and potential discrimination. That’s why the Human Rights Campaign is continuing the fight on the local, state and federal levels for full LGBTQ equality.
