HRC 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.
