On Sunday, some 1,500 people gathered to honor the victims of the Orlando nightclub massacre. Yesterday, Denver did it again.

Undeterred by a day of thunder and rain, hundreds of people — perhaps more than a thousand — came to Cheesman Park on Monday night for a vigil hosted by PFLAG Denver. Here’s what they saw, including the rainbow that stretched over it all.
