The scene in WeHo on Sunday:
In Manhattan, hundreds spontaneously gathered outside the Stonewall Inn to remember the victims of Omar Mateen who died at Pulse in Orlando Sunday morning.
Along the edges of crowd about two dozen heavily armed members of NYPD stood stoically but on alert as television crews conducted interviews with passersby, many of whom spoke furiously through tears. At one point, led by an group unseen to me in the middle of the crowd, attendees erupted in a singalong of Over The Rainbow. As the song ended a small child’s voice wafted over the square: “STOP THE HATE!” And then, for the first time, you saw smiles.
