Orlando Shakes creates ‘angel wings’ to block Westboro protesters – Orlando Sentinel

Orlando Sentinel: Orlando Shakespeare Theater has joined efforts to keep protesters from Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funerals of those killed at gay nightclub Pulse. For the past two days, staff and others have used the theater’s costume shop to build 11 sets of “angel wings.” “Volunteers will be wearing these large, white angel wings to show their support, proclaim love, and block the view of mourners from potential protesters,” said artistic director Jim Helsinger.
