Vigil to remember Orlando nightclub shooting held in Downtown Knoxville

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A year ago many people died in the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting. Communities across the country are hosting vigils to remember the victims.

The Tennessee Equality Project hosted a vigil in Knoxville Monday night at Krutch Park in Downtown Knoxville at 7 p.m. with music, speeches and candlelit reading of the names of the victims.

“A year ago, our community was broken. We’re still broken, and it made such a powerful impact on the Knoxville community. So one year later, we’re still in the same place we were. We’re still just as afraid, just as broken,” said LGBT activist Roddy Biggs.
