Orlando stands united a year after the horrific terrorist attack / hate crime that took place at Pulse Nightclub…
June, 12 2017 officially marks Orlando United Day, a day of love and kindness by The City of Orlando and Orange County Government, in collaboration with Pulse.
Additionally, people all over the country are remembering the 49 lives of the LGBTQ community that were taken too soon and many more injured after gunman Omar Mateen opened fire in the gay nightclub — a place that was supposed to be a safe haven for these individuals. It was an attack not only on them but the entire equality effort in our society.
The nightclub remains closed and there are plans to turn it into a memorial.
