Members of the SAG-AFTRA Portland Local took to the downtown streets on Sunday June 19, 2016 to show support for their LGBT brothers and sisters in the wake of the Orlando massacre.
"Love triumphed here today," said Portland Local President Duane Hanson, who is pictured beside his daughter Desi and Local Vice President Michele Mariana. "We enjoyed amazing pro-union support from the crowd, with several running up to shake our hands and share quick stories of how the union benefitted them, or their folks, in times of need."
Unofficial estimates quadrupled the normal number of parade marchers, as the Portland community showed unprecedented support in the wake of the very recent tragedy in Orlando.
