NEW YORK - In a stirring tribute, thousands of New Yorkers have gathered at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village to honor the victims of the Orlando nightclub massacre.
Hours after the gunman opened fire inside the Orlando gay club, hundreds of New Yorkers gathered at the Stonewall Inn, the renowned birthplace on the modern gay rights movement. They chanted “No hate” and “More Love.”
Both New York’s Mayor and Governor attended. In a joint statement, they said: “The LGBT community in America and around the world is often the target of hate, but time and again has proven that love conquers hate. We will not run and hide, we will not cower to violence and we will continue to love and fight for full equality for all Americans.”
