Epic Vogue Battle Breaks Out At London Vigil For Orlando Victims

We will not be held down!

Members of London’s LGBT community refused to stop living their best, gayest lives at a vigil for the victims of the massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando Sunday.

As we reported yesterday, thousands crowded the streets in front of the famous Admiral Duncan pub in the SoHo gayborhood to pay homage to the victims, 49 of whom were tragically killed alongside 53 who were wounded.

Those in attendance observed a moment of silence, cheered as 49 colored balloons (to represent the 49 dead) were released into the air, heard a moving performance by London’s Gay Men’s Chorus, and then, some even vogued.

Broadly UK editor Zing Tsjeng was on the scene when the impromptu battle broke out and, judging by the reaction on people’s faces nearby, it couldn’t have happened at a better moment.

“Now a full on vogue battle has broken out in the middle of Old Compton St.,” Tsjeng wrote. “London, I love you #SohoVigil”
