This visual poetry project is dedicated to the victims of the Pulse massacre who lost their lives during a simple night out with loved ones and strangers, forever embedded and united in history on that tragic night. On June 12, 2016, a horrific attack on the Queer and Trans communities took place at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL. As a result, 49 lives were taken, culminating in the largest mass murder on American soil since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. [ 608 more words ]
