 Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: Epilogue: At an impromptu memorial at the end of the March, Tigger-James Ferguson (right) and his husband Scott Parent pose in front of the signs they carried honoring two of the 49 victims in Orlando. The pair came up with the idea to pay tribute to the 49 “human beings” by marching in a group of 49, all dressed in white and veiled, with each carrying a sign with the photo, name and age of one of the victims. Ferguson marched for Jean Carlos Mendez Perez and Parent marched for Luis Daniel Wilson-Leon, Perez’s lover of 10 years. "If you feel grief, we hope our memorial will help a little bit,” Ferguson wrote on Facebook. "If you feel rage, please make it productive. Fight for change. For Jean Carlos and Luis. For everyone who should be here." #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: A final "Fuck the NRA!" #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: Two of GaG's co-founders, John Grauwiler (second from left) and Brian Worth (third from left), as the group approaches the Stonewall Inn #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: Brian, my muse #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: I photographed this woman last year and was happy to see her again.

You can tell by how they looked at each other.” They were among the 49 victims in Orlando. Their families honored them with a joint funeral. This is why we marched. #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: Brian, my muse #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: GaG co-founders John Grauwiler (left), Brian Worth (second from left) and Kevin Hertzog (fourth from left) #whp  Pride March 2016: Gays Against Guns: Starting down Fifth Avenue #whp
