In the wake of Sunday’s tragedy in Orlando, the UNT community will unite during a candlelight vigil Thursday to express its condolences and support the victims, their families, loved ones and friends, and our nation’s LGBTQ community.

The vigil to remember the victims and strengthen our community will be hosted by UNT’s Pride Alliance, Multicultural Center and Office of Spiritual Life in collaboration with TWU and Denton community organizations from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 16, at the Library Mall on UNT’s campus.

The vigil will include speakers who will talk about the mass shooting’s effect on the LGBTQ, Latino and Islamic communities. In addition, community members may choose to participate in the vigil by sharing during open mic time. The vigil will close with the reading of the names of the deceased and lighting of candles.
