The night Britain showed its rainbow colours for Orlando
LGBT rainbow flag love

As we reported yesterday, cities all over Britain did (and continue to do) their bit to honour the victims of last Sunday’s devastating Orlando shooting.

Last night, moving candlelit vigils took place in Glasgow, Manchester and Cardiff – to name a few – with more planned in other cities throughout this week.

Here are a collection of moving images taken last night as British residents stood in support of those who died or were injured in Orlando, as well as the LGBT community worldwide.
