The Philly Pride parade marched on yesterday despite the tragedy that took place in Orlando early Sunday morning. Many LGBT supporters took to the streets to continue celebrating Pride weekend in honor of the victims of the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, and a vigil will be held tonight in front of City Hall at 6:45 p.m.
Below are a few highlights from the parade and weekend festivities, courtesy of social media.
While I had the privilege of spending this weekend with my family, tragically 50 beautiful souls were taken too soon. I will never be able to understand such senseless violence and it breaks my heart to think about the families who have been torn apart. Inaction is not an option. We must do better: for our country, for our communities, for each other. #phillypride2016 #lovenothate #lgbtq #stopthehate
