A candlelight vigil for the victims of the Orlando massacre has been scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Sunday at Ten Atlanta.
The Facebook event asks people to meet in the parking lot at sunset and “stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Orlando.”
“Please bring any candles that you have, even if they are in little glass jars. Whatever you have. We will light up the night.
What makes us different makes us beautiful. We need to stand strong in the face of terror and show them they can’t take away our pride. Bring your rainbow flags too!”
A drag performance is planned at Burkhart’s Pub in Atlanta, starting about 10 p.m.
Abhor Ra said she is performing for Tossed Salad.
She said the massacre marks the saddest day in a lot of people’s lives.
“A single maniac has taken it upon himself to ruin innumerable lives,” Abhor Ra said.
The Tossed Salad event includes a screening of a trailer of “Queer Moxie,” a film about the importance, evolution and joy of queer performance art.
Abhor Ra said all tips she makes will go to the GoFundMe for victims of the Pulse shooting.
The Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence plan to hold a candlelight vigil in the parking lot outside the Ansley Bars at 7 p.m. to “pay tribute to those that were lost last night in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting.”
