Candlelight vigils held across Australia to honour Orlando shooting victims

By | On June 13, 2016


Candlelight vigils are being held in Australia's major cities to remember the victims of a massacre at a gay nightclub in Florida which left at least 50 people dead.


Hundreds gathered with candles and rainbow flags in Sydney's Taylor Square, where former Prime Minister Tony Abbott's sister Christine Forster and her partner Virginia held hands as they joined others who surrounded a nature strip at Taylor Square that was covered in flowers, rainbow flags and the word "Orlando" spelled out by candles.
A similar vigil was held in Newtown while landmarks, such as the Harbour Bridge, have been lit up to show support for the 50 people killed and more than 50 people injured by a gunman inside crowded Orlando club Pulse early on Sunday.
The rainbow flag flew above the Sydney Town Hall in solidarity with the LGBTQI community in Florida as Lord Mayor Clover Moore said she was "horrified and appalled by the ugly, evil violence that's caused this attack".
In Canberra, the Greens said they were cancelling a Queen's birthday cake-eating stunt at Parliament House planned as part of a push to make Australia a republic.
Sydney Town Hall was also lit up pink on Monday night.
