(HUDSON, N.Y.) – A vigil in solidarity with those who mourn for the victims of the terrorist attack in Orlando, Fla., this past weekend will take place at Washington Park, in front of the Columbia County Courthouse, opposite the post office on Union Street, on Monday, June 13, at 7pm.
The event is being called for by OutHudson, a newly formed organization whose mission is to bring awareness of LBGTQ issues in the Hudson Valley.
A statement issued by OutHudson reads:
“In light of the devastating news from Orlando, we join with global supporters of LGBTQ rights to commemorate the suffering and loss suffered in this despicable attack. OutHudson plans to join the community of Hudson, and beyond … to show their support.”
The group also announced that it will halt the Hudson Pride Parade on Saturday, June 18, at 2:15pm, for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Orlando attack.
OutHudson is the sponsor of the Hudson Pride events, designed to encourage awareness and community, taking place on the weekend of June 17-19.
