PHOTOESSAY: Orlando Pulse One Year Memorial Rally at the Stonewall Inn

On Monday night Gays Against Guns (GAG) and 20 partnering New York nightclubs joined together to memorialize the victims of Pulse. Starting at Henrietta Hudson, 49 “Human Beings,” each representing a victim, walked to the Stonewall Inn lead by youth acapella group Passing Notes and the GAG Choir. As they went, they were joined by the patrons of the neighboring bars.

The rally was centered around the victims and their stories, including deeply moving words from survivor Keinon Carter.
