Pulse Night of Remembrance is an annual commemoration day held in the U.S. on June 12 every year. On this day in 2016, a mass shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killed 49 people and injured 53 others. On this particular day, Pulse was presenting “Latin Night,” a weekly Saturday night event predominantly attended by Latinos. About 320 people were still inside the club, which was serving last-call drinks at around 2:00 a.m. when the horrific incident occurred.
The Grand Rapids Pride Center aims to be at the center of a vibrant and inclusive community that supports all LGBTQ individuals.
