Dec. 12 marks the six-month anniversary of the mass shooting where a gunman killed 49 people at the gay nightclub Pulse and injured 53 others. Various organizations will be holding remembrance ceremonies that day where the public is welcome. Here's a list of the events posted so far, and we will update the list if more emerge:

- Pulse: Remembering our Angels will hold a moment of silence and candle lighting at the nightclub on Orange Avenue at 2:02 a.m. on Monday. This first event will be for victims, survivors, family members and Pulse staff members only. Later that day at 5:30 p.m., the club's gates will reopen for the second part of the ceremony featuring the Orlando Gay Chorus; Angels of Action presented by The GLBT Community Center of Orlando; the Rev. Cynthia Alice Anderson from Christ Church Unity; and Pastor Terri Steed Pierce with the Joy Metropolitan Community Church. The public is welcome to the second event.
