“To fully grasp the unique horror of what happened inside Pulse . . . you have to understand the outsize role that bars play in the history, lives and imagination of [queer] people. . “They are refuges and havens, places where, the moment you cross the threshold, there is an unspoken understanding: You will feel accepted and safe.” – Michael Barbaro, @nytimes , June 13, 2016 .

I remember when Pulse happened (I was eleven ) I heard somebody say “well, this is just another shooting, everybody will forget about it in a couple of days”. I made it a point to think about it every day for the rest of the summer, and I still do think about it a lot. Rest In Peace to all of the amazing people who are no longer here 💔
