On June 12, 2016, the LGBTQ community was targeted. A man filled with hate and armed with an assault rifle murdered 49 people and injured 68 others at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. 

Please join Pride Fund to End Gun Violence, the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington DC, and a great lineup of speakers on Tuesday, June 12th at 8pm in Dupont Circle as we commemorate the two-year anniversary of the shooting. Join us as we come together to honor the victims and demand action from our elected officials.

We will begin the ceremony at 8pm as we gather at the fountain. Please bring your own candle if possible, as we will have a limited supply available.

We fight for policies that protect LGBTQ individuals from discrimination and violence. We support candidates for office who do the same.
