Pulse Nightclub Will Become A Permanent Memorial To Victims Of Orlando Massacre

Pulse Nightclub, a queer club that became the location of the worst mass shooting in American history, is slated to become a permanent memorial for the 49 individuals, most of them queer people of color, who lost their lives on June 12 when an armed shooter opened fire.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, a new nonprofit called OnePULSE recently filed a document that outlines plans to turn the nightclub into a memorial.

WESH reports that the donations received through OnePULSE will be used for “conceiving, funding and aiding in the construction of a permanent memorial on the existing Pulse site in Orlando… and other relevant sites to be determined by the Board.”

OnePULSE is reportedly planning on holding a benefit concert to raise money for the planned memorial on Aug. 19. Head here for more info.
