Wellington stands with Orlando

Wellington stands with Orlando

Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre will be lit in colours of the rainbow this evening as a gesture of support for the LGBTI victims of the Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando, Florida.

Mayor Celia Wade-Brown says Wellingtonians have reacted in horror to the news of the massacre. “This is a multi-cultural capital city - we welcome diversity of expression.

“I express my deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the victims,” she says.

Mayor Wade-Brown says she will join others at the Stand for Orlando event scheduled to start in Frank Kitts Park at six o’clock this evening.
