In the days that have followed the tragedy at Pulse Nightclub, cities around the world have shown their solidarity with Orlando and its LGBT community by coming together for vigils, lighting up buildings, and more.
Here are social media posts highlighting many of these events:

Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau [Link]
“I am deeply shocked and saddened to learn today so many people have been killed and injured following a mass shooting in Orlando, Florida.
“While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is appalling that as many as 50 lives may have been lost to this domestic terror attack targeting the LGBTQ2 community.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I offer our condolences and prayers to the families and friends of those lost today, and wish a full recovery to all those injured. We stand in solidarity with Orlando and the LGBTQ2 community.
“We grieve with our friends in the United States and Florida, and offer any assistance we can provide.”
