The city will mark the first year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy on Monday, June 12th to honor the memories of the 49 Pulse Victims. Memorial ceremonies will take place at the site of the Pulse Nightclub as well as in Lake Eola located in downtown Orlando.
A collection of the memorial signs and posters that were left at the former nightclub in the days following the tragedy, will be on display at the Orange County Regional History Center.
Orlando's Mayor, Buddy Dyer stated, “Our community will never forget the tragedy of Pulse or the grief of those who lost loved ones. From heartbroken family and friends to survivors putting shattered lives back together, our entire community stands with you.”
The focus of the day will not be on the tragedy that occurred but on how the community came together to show their love and support for the survivors, the victims and their families.
The Day of Love and Kindness on June 12th will follow The Equality March for Unity and Pride, (#EqualityMarch2017) to take place on June 11th in Washington, DC and around the globe.
