Sydney LGBT tribute Orlando 1yr on (video)

A short video from Taylor Square in Sydney, a memorial event one year on from the Pulse massacre of the LGBT nightclub in Orlando, US.

The LGBT is a global community across all boundaries. It's with this feeling that we grieve in concert with our brothers and sisters gunned down in cold blood by a twisted sicko who hated himself and therefore us. We in Sydney, as LGBT across the world feel the pain deeply of what was done to us that night. We will never forget.

May Pulse be a testament to the excesses and dangers of the closet, and where self hatred of one's sexuality can ultimately lead. May Pulse show the world the unfair hatred thrown at us for no other reason than difference. May Pulse in the end lead to society's desire to change from the horror of that hatred to acceptance of us....
