Pulse Remembrance Day – 5 Years Later We Still Say Their Names

It’s been five years since the tragedy at Club Pulse in Orlando Florida on June 12, 2016. This act of terrorism rocked our community and left many in the LGBTQ+ community feeling vulnerable and shaken. For decades, our clubs have been those spaces where the community felt safe. Our bars have been a place to organize and spend time with our chosen family and friends.

It’s important to never forget this happened. We need to stand strong, together and fearless to hate and those who wish us harm. We ask the you join us today, on Pulse Remembrance Day to honor the lives of the victims, members and allies alike of our community we lost that day.
