On Monday, J.K. Rowling showed how London’s Palace Theater, where her hotly anticipated new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is currently in previews, is honoring victims of the recent massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

As of Monday, the Palace Theater’s facade is now emblazoned with a rainbow image in tribute to the victims and as a message of love in this time of tragedy. “Love Is Love,” Rowling tweeted along with an image of the theater’s exterior.

Rowling previously commented on the Orlando attack when she discovered that one of the victims is Luis Vielma, a 22-year-old who worked in the Harry Potter section at Florida’s Universal Studios. “I can’t stop crying,” she tweeted upon finding out the news.
