At the corner of 18th and Castro in San Francisco's predominantly gay Castro district, there's an impromptu memorial for the Orlando, Fla., shooting victims: candles, flowers and signs that read "Love Conquers Hate" and "You Only Make Us Stronger."
Daniel Kobetitisch, a student, solemnly watches the memorial for several minutes.
"I think it's such a horrific event, and unfortunately it scares us all, so," he says.
That fear, he says, extends to his plans to attend San Francisco's Pride Parade in two weeks. Kobetitisch says he'll be there, but with some hesitation.
