Pittsburgh Unites says
In 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, the LGBT community took a stand and decided they were no longer going to be silenced. 47 years later the fight continues. We will NOT bow down. We believe that everyone has the right to live in a world where you can love the person you want to love and be who you want to be without being afraid.

In the wake of the vicious act of anti-LGBT hate violence at Pulse Night Club in Orlando in which 49 people were murdered, 53 wounded and countless others traumatized, the Pittsburgh community will be holding UNITE WITH ORLANDO at Point State Park.

The actual dates will be announced soon.

We are in the process of approaching a major entertainment headliner who will perform, along with supporting local and regional entertainment, and who will bring all facets of the community together as one against hate and discrimination.

The Pittsburgh Foundation has agreed to create a fund for this event. A granting process will be created to support frontline organizations including the LGBT community, the LGBT Latino community, supporting LGBT and allied Muslim communities, and addressing violence against LGBT communities. The Pittsburgh Foundation is working with the Arcus Foundation - Social Justice One Orlando and Our Fund to create the process for distribution of these funds.

Support for this event Stonewall Sports - Pittsburgh, Steel City Softball League, Visit Pittsburgh, Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, Dignity and Respect Campaign, iHeartRadio, ShowClix, Drusky Entertainment, , Central Outreach Wellness Center, Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force, New Leaders Council - Pittsburgh Chapter, Peony Entertainment, New Leaders Council - Pittsburgh Chapter and UHIMWE.Alliance . This list is not complete as additional organizations are still coming on board.
