GREENWICH VILLAGE, Manhattan — Nearly 100 people demonstrated inside Grand Central Terminal Saturday night to rally in solidarity with the Orlando shooting victims. .
They made signs, sang songs and talked about how the worst mass shooting in U.S. history last Sunday at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando has affected each and every one of them.
"We're here to prioritize queer people of color," organizer Eliot Anderson told PIX11. "They need to mourn what was very obviously a hate crime."
Many demonstrating are angry at the politicians and public figures who they say have hijacked their tragedy for their own political purposes.
The group chanted "we're here, we're queer, we're fabulous, don't F*** with us!"
From Grand Central, the demonstrators marched down Seventh Avenue to the Stonewall Inn where the names of those gunned down in Orlando were read aloud.
Many in this crowd had numbers on their arms of the National Lawyers Guild so they would know who to call in case they got arrested.
But police said there were no arrests.
