Orlando Shooter Was Gay, Claim Ex-Wife And Former Classmates

"I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer,” said a classmate at the Indian River community college police academy.

 Reports surfaced on Monday that the shooter in the attack on a gay Orlando nightclub had been to the club many times before, and even had a profile on the gay dating app Jack’d.

Now both Omar Mateen’s ex-wife and his former police academy classmates are saying he was gay.

 A classmate of Mateen’s at the Indian River Community College police academy told the Palm Beach Post that the 29-year-old once asked him out on a date.

“We went to a few gay bars with him, and I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer,” said the man, who asked for anonymity.

“He just wanted to fit in and no one liked him,” he said. “He was always socially awkward.”

The classmate assumed Mateen was closeted at the time.

 Mateen’s ex-wife, Sitora Yusufiy, spoke with Brazilian TV network SBT on Monday with her current husband.

Yusufiy described Mateen as having “gay tendencies” and said his father, Seddique Mateen, called him gay in front of her numerous times.

Seddique Mateen told reporters on Sunday that his son had been outraged at the sight of seeing two men kissing, but denied Omar was gay himself.

“If he was gay, why would he do something like this?” he asked the Post.

Numerous studies have indicated that people who are homophobic often harbor homosexual tendencies.

Anger, Love And Hope At Orlando Vigil At NYC’s Stonewall Inn

"I am indeed Orlando, and in times like this, I find myself at a loss for what to do."
From: NewNowNext
 The Stonewall Inn is the symbolic birthplace of the LGBT rights movement—a movement born out of violence but with a message of peace and love.

On Monday night, thousands poured into the streets around Stonewall to commemorate the victims of the Orlando massacre, and galvanize the community into action.

 Speakers at the gathering ranged from Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo to entertainers Nick Jonas and Tituss Burgess.

“I have to tell you, being here and seeing all of your faces has comforted me in a way that I did not expect coming down here,” said Burgess to the crowd. “I am indeed Orlando, and in times like this, I find myself at a loss for what to do.”

But he knew just what to do, singing “Somewhere” from West Side Story

Governor Cuomo called for gun-control reform in the wake of yet another devastating mass shooting.

 “We had Columbine, we had Virginia Tech, we had Sandy Hook, we had San Bernardino, we had Aurora, Colorado—when does it stop?” Governor Cuomo said.

“The problem is that people who are willing to take lives indiscriminately can get a gun,” a mourner said.

Cuomo also called on those present to not shrink in fear but to be louder and prouder in the face of adversity.

“Let’s pledge tonight to have the largest Pride parade in history,” said Cuomo, referencing the annual procession happening June 26.

Other vigils were held around the world on Sunday and Monday.

Below, more images from the Stonewall gathering.

Anderson Cooper Gets Choked Up During Emotional Tribute To Orlando Victims

"They are more than a list of names. They are people who loved and who were loved."
From: NewNowNext
On his prime time program Monday evening, Anderson Cooper gave a poignant tribute to the 49 lives lost in the deadly attack at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando this past weekend.

The CNN anchor opened the segment by noting that the network had yet to display photos or names of the victims of the shooting, focusing instead on the gunman and his motives. He vowed to spend the “next two hours” keeping “focus where we think it belongs, on the people whose lives were cut short.”

The nearly seven minute long video sees Cooper emotionally listing off the names of all 49 victims while sharing personal information about them that the network received from their families. He describes those lost as witty, funny, good at dancing, kind, quiet, resilient and, for the majority of the victims, too young.

Cooper shared the video on his Twitter along with the message: “They are more than a list of names. They are people who loved and who were loved.”

Adele broke down in tears during her concert in Antwerp, Belgium Sunday night when she paid an emotional tribute to the 49 dead and 53 wounded, mostly LGBT victims of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history this weekend.

“I would like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and at Pulse nightclub last night,” the Grammy award-winning singer told a 23,000-strong crowd at the Sportpaleis arena in Antwerp.

“The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soulmates since I was really young, so I’m very moved by it.”

Adele joked that most of her music is “fucking miserable,” which is why she paid homage before performing “Rumor Has It,” one of her “two songs that sound happy.”

 Queen and Adam Lambert took to the stage Sunday night at the annual Isle Of Wight Festival, and dedicated their performance of the Queen classic “Who Wants To Live Forever” to the victims and survivors of the Orlando shooting.

“This song is dedicated to those who lost their life last night in Orlando, Florida,” an emotional Lambert told the crowd. “And anybody who has been victim of senseless violence or hatred.”

Other music stars have also paid tribute to the 49 people killed on Saturday night. Monday in Los Angeles, Lady Gaga joined throngs of mourners at a vigil at City Hall.

“Let’s all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and to their families who are suffering so deeply,” said the singer. “They are sons and daughters. They were fathers and mothers. They are all our brothers and our sisters.”

She added, “But, tonight I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack to overshadow our need to honor those who are grieving truly for their lost ones, lost members of the LGBT community.”

This Is The Face Of Grief

"This is a club nobody wants to be a member of," says a mother whose son is was among those still missing from the Orlando massacre.
From: NewNowNext
 We can’t even imagine it: One moment your son is heading out for a night out with friends, and the next you don’t know if they’re alive or dead.

That was the situation Christine Leinonen found herself in Sunday morning at 3am, when she woke up and saw on Facebook the club her son Christopher was at the site of the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.

In a heart wrenching interview with ABC News, Leinonen talks about the last time she heard from Christopher, what news she had and being in a club “that nobody wants to be a member of.”

“They said there’s a lot of dead bodies in the club and that it’s a crime scene… so it could be hours and hours before we find out,” she tells George Stephanopoulos. The hospital said there are some bodies at the hospital that came in and they died and they’re not identifiable yet either,”

She said she was very proud of her son, who had been an advocate for the LGBT community—forming a Gay Straight Alliance at his high school and winning a humanitarian award. She also called for a ban on assault rifles and an end to the epidemic of violence plaguing America.

“Please let’s all just get along,” She begs, gasping for breath. “We’re on this earth for such a short time let’s try to get rid of the hatred and the violence please!”

Since the ABC News report, Leinonen revealed she’s been told by authorities that Christopher is “likely” dead.

Update: Christopher body was identified and Christine was notified of his death around 11 am Monday morning, approximately 30 hours after the shooting began. Christopher's body was one the many in the club after the assault was over.

200 Muslims Gathered In NYC To Pray For Those Lost In Orlando

"As Muslims, we are united in our outrage over this senseless act of violence."
From: NewNowNext
More than 200 Muslims came together on Sunday in New York City to pray for the victims of the Orlando massacre.

Huffington Post shared a video on Facebook of the Muslims attending the annual Iftar in the Park celebration, in which they broke their fasting for the month of Ramadan, and also used the opportunity to show their support for the victims.

“We’re praying for those who were lost,” said one of the attendees. “That God grants them peace and tranquility.”

“As Muslims, we are united in our outrage over this senseless act of violence,” she added. “We want the rest of the country to know that we are thinking about what happened in Orlando and that we’re standing with those people.”

“I Love You As You Are”: Parents of LGBT Children Give Out Free Hugs

"Many wept in my arms."
From: NewNowNext
The Korean chapter of PFLAG opened a booth at the Korea Queer Culture Festival in Seoul last weekend and gave out free hugs to any attendees who felt they could use a mother’s embrace.

“It was supposed to be a brief event. We were surprised that so many showed up for a hug,” said Ji-in, a mother whose son came out as gay three years ago.

“Many wept in my arms. I am glad that I did that.”

Ji-In added that she was in shock when she realized how many people wanted a hug from her. When her son came out she realized there was nothing she could do to change him, so she accepted him. “I love my son for who he is.”

“They are already going through so much because of prejudice and discrimination due to their sexual identity. If I decide to reject him, who would support him? We need to unite to build a society where my son will have a better life,” Ji-in told The Korea Times.

“Some of the people who came for hugs cried – maybe they felt like it was their own mother,” said Bbomi, another member of PFLAG Korea.

“I found myself thinking how wonderful it would be if they could openly tell their parents [that they are LGBT] and be acknowledged and supported.”

Mothers gave out hugs for three hours during the festival.
