During the Five-Year Pulse Remembrance Week, which will take place from June 5 to June 12, 2021, a variety of community-wide activities are being held.
In 2016, the city of Orlando was changed forever by the shooting at Pulse nightclub. The loss of 49 souls from the LGBT and LatinX communities reverberated around the world. The way that Orlando and Central Florida came together as one community was something we’ll never forget either.
Here is the list of events planned for the week:
On June 12, 2016, Orlando witnessed a devastating tragedy, and in honor of the 49 lives lost, and all of those affected by the Pulse tragedy, The City of Orlando deemed June 12 Orlando United Day – A Day of Love and Kindness.
As we approach Orlando United Day 2018, venues around the city will mark the two-year anniversary with memorials, exhibits, and more.
Here is what is scheduled so far:
Orlando Shakespeare Theater in partnership with UCF invites audiences to take a risk on new plays at PlayFest presented by Harriett’s Charitable Trust from November 3 – 6, 2016.
This year’s event, titled PlayFest: After Pulse, will feature six new plays that explore issues surrounding the Pulse tragedy.
