Los Angeles LGBT Center Plans Rally, Vigil for Orlando Shooting Victims

The event will remember and honor the lives lost in the Orlando nightclub shooting on Sunday

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is holding a rally and vigil Monday to honor and remember the lives lost in Sunday's Orlando nightclub shooting.

The event begins at 7 p.m. at Los Angeles City Hall, at 200 N Spring St., and hopes to unite allies and members of the LGBT community in the wake of the tragic shooting in Orlando at a LGBT nightclub. Participants will meet in the free speech area outside the City Hall.

The rally and vigil follows a number of prayer and remembrance services around Southern California on Sunday, in areas such as Santa Ana and Chino. The usally festive LA PRIDE parade began Sunday with a moment of silence for the victims.

Forty nine people were killed when a gunman opened fire Sunday morning inside Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The shooter died in an exchange of gunfire with officers.
