Rally, Vigil on Tuesday for Orlando LGBT victims


Lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender citizens will continue to love in the face of hate and violence, the President of the United States said in a speech Sunday after the worst mass shooting in modern United States history.

President Obama also ordered flags be flown at half staff which means that on Tuesday, Flag Day, American flags will not be in their usual celebratory position in front of Federal buildings across the country.

And while we all have our own take on the hate that led to this terrible tragedy, now is the time to mourn.

Rainbow Seniors will gather on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 beginning at 5:30 in Pittsfield’s Park Square along with others from the larger community. The Rally and Vigil’s organizers include Ed Sedarbaum from Rainbow Seniors. There is a Facebook page for the event.
