Pulse, the site of the largest mass murder of LGBTQ people in U.S. history, is set to become a permanent national memorial.
Via ABC News:
Pulse owner Barbara Poma, serving as CEO and executive director of the onePULSE Foundation, which was established to create and maintain the new memorial as well as provide community grants and scholarships, announced plans for the memorial this morning, nearly 11 months after the June 12, 2016, nightclub attack that killed 49 people.
The creation of the memorial will involve input from the community, including survivors and victims' family members, Poma said at a press conference this morning outside the nightclub.
"The community most impacted by this horrible event in our history should determine the future of the Pulse site and how their loved ones and the events of that day should be memorialized," she said.
