WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- A rally and vigil were held Saturday in Connecticut in tribute to the five people killed at an LGBTQ+ bar in Colorado Springs last week.
Supporters gathered at Blue Back Square in West Hartford.
It's been one week since.
Organizers of Saturday's rally condemned the senseless tragedy and what they say is a growing epidemic of homophobia fed by discriminatory legislation and policies.
They encouraged others to stand up to LGBTQ+ hate by demonstrating, writing letters or emails, making calls or displaying flags.
