New Orleans Pride Stands With Pulse

The New Orleans Pride parade doubled in size as many joined last minute to march for Orlando.

New Orleans Pride took place the weekend after the Orlando shooting. After a week filled with sadness, prayers, and vigils, the city came together to show our support and solidarity for Pulse and all of Orlando. The parade was led with a riderless float decorated with wreaths and lights, followed by a giant heart emblazoned with the message “LOVE WINS.” More than 2,000 people marched, many holding signs calling out their love for Orlando.

Watch the video below to see how the city came together, standing with Pride for Pulse.
