Yesterday, 49 white doves were released during Pasadena’s Rose Parade to honor the 49 people killed during the shooting at gay club Pulse in Orlando this summer. Both the victims and survivors were also honored with a float made with 5,000 memorial notes and a variety of flowers designed to create two rainbows and a large dove symbolizing unity and peace. Jahqui Sevilla, Victor Baez Febo, and Isaiah Henderson, all survivors of the attack, rode the float and sat under the rainbows with the owner of Pulse and local representatives from the LGBTQ community.
