The LGBTQ community celebrated pride parades across the U.S. and world over the weekend.
Officials, LGBT community members and others across the nation and world have gathered to show solidarity with the victims and survivors of the Orlando nightclub shooting. Omar Mateen opened fire in Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, early Sunday morning, carrying out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Unidentified assailants fatally stabbed two men in Bangladesh’s capital Monday, including a gay rights activist who also worked for the USAID, police said. It marks the latest in a series of attacks in the country targeting atheists, moderates and foreigners.
Members and supporters of the LGBT community participated in a “Pride March” rally in Bangalore, India on Sunday. Gay rights supporters waved flags and danced past traffic during the march to celebrate gay pride and to push for the repeal of a colonial-era law that makes homosexuality a crime.
