Cities Across the World Light Up in Rainbow Colors for Orlando

From Orlando to Kansas City, Sydney, Tel Aviv

Mourning the victims of Sunday morning's tragic mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Florida—in what is being called the deadliest such shooting in U.S. history—cities and communities the world over are lighting up their buildings, bridges, and monuments with the rainbow colors of the LGBTQ flag in a show of solidarity.

Vivid, full-spectrum color has swathed the spire of the World Trade Center in New York City to City Hall in Tel Aviv and Harbour Bridge in Sydney, Australia, paying tribute to those who lost their lives and offering a little light in this dark and sad time.
