PHOTOS: Prayer Ribbons for Pulse victims on display at Orlando City Hall

ORLANDO | A small gathering was held outside Orlando City Hall June 6 to commemorate the Prayer Ribbons for Pulse on display.

The project was started by Jay Critchley as a way to remember those that had lost their lives to the AIDS epidemic. After the horrific events that occurred at Pulse nightclub, additional ribbons were added with the name of the victims written on them.

Critchley presented the ribbons for the community to come and view in the hopes it will bring support and inspire.

Mayor Buddy Dyer opened the event calling on us to remember the 49 victims we lost seven years ago.

City Commissioner Patty Sheehan addressed the attacks coming from Tallahassee and voiced frustration for a recent rise in anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment in the state.

The Prayer Ribbons will be on display through June 17 outside of Orlando City Hall.

Watermark was present at the city hall event and collected this gallery of images.
