Orlando, you are in our hearts.

Photos (by me) from the Vigil for Orlando at Perth Cultural Centre in Perth, Western Australia. I was absolutely blown away by the number of people who turned out tonight and the fantastic display of solidarity by audience and speakers, community and ally alike. We even had ASL translation, an address (a personal standout amongst many great speeches) by a queer Muslim woman to & about other queer Muslims and a Noongar (local Indigenous) smoke/smoking ceremony to farewell the dead. It was a fantastic, inclusive service and I think we were all feeling the love. I hope the world is feeling it too.
