Millions of people marched in rainbow-colored parades across the United States on Sunday to celebrate LGBT pride, two weeks after the Pulse gay club massacre in Orlando.

In New York, where two million spectators were expected, the parade left at noon near the Empire State Building to end at the bar of the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace in 1969 of the gay rights movement, declared Friday by Barack Obama’s first national monument dedicated to the cause.

The parade was heavily supervised by police to reassure participants, still in shock after the June 12 massacre of 49 people at a gay club in central Orlando, Florida, by a gunman who pledged allegiance to the organization Islamic State (IS).

Despite the good weather, at the rendezvous from the east side to the west side, in Chicago as in San Francisco, the party was more contained than usual, especially compared to the celebrations last June which followed legalization. of same-sex marriage by the US Supreme Court.

“I was so moved, so outraged, after Orlando,” said Dorothee Benz, 50, who marched under the banner “New York Supports Orlando” (New York supports Orlando). “We need to be ‘out’ and proud more than ever, but with that comes grief and anger,” she continued.

In New York, one could see on the first floats of the parade the owner of the Pulse, Barbara Poma, and her manager Neema Bahrami.

Hillary Clinton, a suspected Democratic presidential candidate, also made an appearance alongside city mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.

In San Francisco, Caroline Foley, a 15-year-old girl who identifies as gay, had her first “Pride”. “Just being gay is dangerous, but it’s also exhilarating and a little overwhelming to see this kind of celebration,” she said, surrounded by flags proclaiming “We are Orlando”.

Leading the procession in Chicago, a group held up photos of the 49 people killed at the Pulse. Among the rainbow flags, symbol of the LGBT community, the color orange, which has become the emblem of the victims of Orlando, was also very present.

Many participants wore orange striped flags or orange scarves to protest gun violence in the United States and demand tighter controls on the sale of arms.

Flood in West Virginia, fire in California: At least 25 dead in the USA

When the US state of West Virginia was flooded, the death toll rose to at least 23 people. This was confirmed by the governor’s office. Meanwhile, the forest fires continued to spread in the arid Pacific state of California. At least two people died and hundreds had to flee their homes.

The floods in the eastern Appalachian state of West Virginia were triggered by unusually heavy rainfall in the past few days. The masses of water carried people away and washed away houses. There were also landslides and mudslides. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency in 44 counties.

In addition to many houses, streets and railroad tracks were also destroyed, the governor said. Tens of thousands of people were without electricity.

In Elkview, northeast of the capital Charleston, nearly 500 people were stuck in a shopping mall for more than 24 hours because floods caused an access bridge to collapse. Employees of the state disaster control agency had to build a makeshift gravel road to bring people to safety.

According to meteorologists, the Elkview River level had risen more than eight meters between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, the highest level since records began more than 125 years ago.

Meanwhile, around 1,100 firefighters were on duty in Lake Isabella, California, to contain the flames that were already spreading over 14,000 hectares.

At least 150 buildings in the fire area around 175 kilometers north of Los Angeles were destroyed and 75 damaged, and another 2500 were at risk, according to the fire department.

At least 20 dead: West Virginia sinks in the floods

At least 20 dead
West Virginia is sinking in the floods

The US state of West Virginia is struggling with the worst floods in 100 years: a state of emergency has been declared and areas are still cut off from the outside world. The town of Elkview is particularly badly hit.

At least 20 people were killed in severe flooding in the US state of West Virginia. A spokesman for civil protection confirmed the CNN. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin said a devastating low had led to landslides, floods and mudslides since Thursday. It is possibly the worst flood in the state in 100 years. There were children among the dead. A state of emergency was imposed in 44 districts, making federal aid easier. The National Guard advanced in support of the local authorities.

Some areas of the mountainous state in the Appalachian Mountains were cut off from the outside world. Roads and tracks have been destroyed, said Tomblin. Tens of thousands were without electricity. The television showed pictures of raging rivers, vehicles drifting through towns and villages. Around 500 people have been stuck in a shopping center in Elkview since Thursday because an access bridge had been destroyed by the flood, as reported by broadcaster ABC. Rescue workers helped some of them to get out of the enclosed area via an alternative route.

In Ravenswood, a four-year-old was swept away by the floods in Ravenswood on Thursday in front of his grandfather, the newspaper “Charleston Gazette-Mail” reported. The man tried to pull the boy out of the water, but he couldn’t. Rescue workers found the child’s body on Friday.

Greenbrier County in the southwest of the state is particularly hard hit, said a spokeswoman for the agency, which coordinates emergency measures.

Forest fires in California

In contrast, California experiences severe drought. At least two people were killed there in forest fires. As the fire department announced on Friday, the two dead were found in the popular resort of Lake Isabella east of Bakersfield. The fire ate its way through the dry mountainous country so quickly that many others only barely got away with their lives. At least 75 square kilometers of land in the southern Sierra Nevada were burned and at least 80 houses were destroyed, said a fire department spokesman. The fire was driven by violent wind. As a result, it moved 17 kilometers within 13 hours, said fire department chief Brian Marshall. His people are still involved in a “battle of epic proportions”. At least three of them suffered from smoke inhalation.

two actors announce their departure

While the series Nashville, canceled by ABC, was renewed for a season 5 on the American cable channel CMT, two regular comedians of the series announced their departure.

Nashville follows the rivalry of two country singers: declining legend Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) and rising star Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettière). Following a drop in audiences, the ABC channel announced last May the cancellation of the series after four seasons. Thanks to the mobilization of fans on social networks, the musical show was renewed on the small American cable channel CMT.

>>> Nashville: Five good reasons to discover the series! (VIDEO)

The series will therefore benefit from a season 5, of which Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick will be the showrunners, replacing Dee Johnson. But two regular cast members have announced that they will not be part of the adventure. According to the TV Line website, Will Chase (the interpreter of Luke Wheeler) and Aubrey Peeples (who plays Layla Grant) will not appear in Season 5 when it debuts on CMT.

Luke Wheeler (Will Chase), the fiancé rejected by Rayna Jaymes in season 3, no longer had such a significant role, his participation being reduced to defending his foal, the young homosexual country singer Will Lexinton (played by Chris Carmack), attacked by the host of a talk show about his sexual preferences. For her part, Layla (Audrey Peeples) was in the uncomfortable position of playing the one trying to destroy the relationship of one of the show’s star couples, formed by Juliette Barnes and Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson).

>>> Jem and the Holograms: Who is Aubrey Peeples?

The future of the two actors remains uncertain. Aubrey Peeples, which we saw last year in the film adaptation of the cartoon Jem and the holograms maybe try to make a career on the big screen. When to Will Chase, he just shot the television fiction For Real.
