WASHINGTON - June 12, 2016 - PRLog -- In response to the act of terrorism inflicted upon the LGBTA community in Orlando, Florida last evening, Bernie Delia, Board President of the Capital Pride Alliance in the Nation's Capitol, Washington, DC stated, "We deplore the wanton and senseless act of terrorism in Orlando, Florida earlier this morning, and our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and friends and the people of central Florida."

"Today's Capital Pride Festival and Concert will go on as planned.  We have every confidence in the security we are able to provide at our events, in large part because of our cooperative partnership with local and federal law enforcement agencies in the Washington, D.C. area, and the strong measures that are already in place for the city," said Mr. Delia.

Capital Pride had a moment of silence from the Capitol Stage at 1:00 p.m. in remembrance of the victims.
