Lady Gaga Continues To Spread Love After Tearful Speech At Orlando Vigil

Vigils have been held all over the world for the victims of the heart-wrenching, tragic shooting at an LGBTQ+ nightclub in Orlando over the weekend. 

Omar Mateen entered Pulse Nightclub on Sunday night, and opened fire with an automatic weapon. He murdered 50 people, and another 53 people were injured. 

Lady Gaga, who is well-known for her activism and participation within the LGBTQ+ community, spoke at the Los Angeles vigil to honour the victims and their families a few days, and got very emotional. 
She tweeted this morning, encouraging those affected to acknowledge their anger, then help others be strong:

In her speech, she said these beautiful, moving words:
“We mourn the tragic loss of these innocent, beautiful people. Let’s all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and to their families who are suffering so deeply. They are sons and daughters. They were fathers and mothers. They are all our brothers and our sisters. 

But, tonight I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack to overshadow our need to honour those who are grieving truly for their lost ones; lost members of the LGBT community.

I hope you know that myself and so many are your allies. Not only me, but everyone here. We represent the compassion and the loyalty of millions of people around the world that believe in you. You are not alone, you are not alone.”
