SF Castro remembers Orlando nightclub shooting victims on one year anniversary

Dozens of people gathered in San Francisco’s Castro District Monday, June 12, 2017 to remember the 49 lives that were lost one year from the date in the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. The shooting shook the Orlando community as well as the LGBTQ community around the country, occurring on Latin night during Pride month. Cities around the world have shown support and solidarity for those affected and have started the #HonorThemWithAction campaign, urging people to take action to uproot the hatred that feeds bullying, harassment, discrimination, and violence.
