Pulse: One Year Later 

It’s been a year since the tragic accident in Orlando Florida, when crazed and sickened Omar Mateen shot up the Pulse nightclub, which is a LGBTQ friendly club were such members can go and enjoy themselves. But that wasn’t the case for 49 people that night. 

I want this to be a huge reminder for everyone, which really connects to my previous blog, that we have so much to fight for, and accomplish. This attack was one of the biggest hate crimes to hit on American Soil. People were murdered for being who they were meant to be. 

Pulse Victims, 2016

It’s hard to imagine that we still face these situations in the new millennium, as we should be way past these types of unnecessary situations. But I want this to be a huge billboard for the quacks that say there is no homophobia, no anti-gay laws, etc. especially since we’re still struggling to be recognized as regular human beings like everyone else. 

Then there are those who don’t even care. Nicki Minaj tweeted this just a few days after the incident: 

It’s completely fine to have your own beliefs and what not, everyone is entitled and unique in their own way… but this? Absolutely no remorse or sympathy for the lives that have been lost? Disgusting. 

But it’s not even just Nicki. 

Some of the parents of the victims never even claimed their bodies after the shooting. Yes, you heard me correctly on that. Why, Do you ask? Because they don’t accept their children for being gay… how heartbreaking, htat even in death, some of these poor souls couldn’t find love and acceptance. Might I remind you all that some of these people would just be turning 22, 23 years old. These were literally babies.  Hell, even the ones that were older, in their 40s and 50s, should be considered babies, for the fact that there is not a point in time when someone says or should ever say: “they’re old enough, it’s ok if they die.” 

Homophobia is real and very much alive today. I don’t know what’s worse, the man killing these innocent people, or the parents that reject them, even in death. They’re both pretty neck and neck if you ask me. 

This should honestly be the new reason and slogan for our pride month, because this is what we fight for, this is what we want justice for, not some damn fictional monster named babadook! 


It’s irrelevant to me if the crazed murderer claimed to be apart of isis or not. That’s no excuse to let this kind of tragic situation slide. This one incident may have been for “isis” but that doesn’t mean that everyone that gets bashed, bullied and murdered on the daily isn’t from someone who is a homophobe. 

It warms my heart to see so many people posting in favor and memory of the pulse victims. It lets me know that some of us still remember and are stricken by the pain to this day. Let them Rest In eternal Peace, because that’s what they deserve. Let’s not allow their murders to be in vain!
