But of course, not all commemoration efforts have to be somber in tone. In fact, sometimes the best way to commemorate a legacy is by celebrating it. As is such, it's exciting to hear that Barbara Poma, the owner of Orlando's Pulse, is currently location scouting for a new Pulse. According to The Orlando Sentinel, plans to reopen the once very popular safe haven for QTPOC are firmly underway. According to a spokesperson, Poma is "looking for a location somewhere in central or urban Orlando."
The announcement comes a few weeks ahead of the city's first town hall meeting dedicated to discussing future plans for turning the original Pulse location into a permanent memorial, which would possibly include a museum. In the meantime, information is still scarce on the release status for the bound-to-be heartbreaking upcoming documentary about the tragic massacre, One Pulse.
