    http://time.com/4382863/orlando-plans-memorial-for-pulse-mass-shooting-victims/The Orlando mayor announced that the city will create a memorial for the 49 Pulse mass shooting victims.

    “As our community continues to heal from this tragic event, we stand committed to creating a permanent space that will preserve the memory of those who lost their lives, provide comfort to those who seek it and honor the spirit and love of our great city,” Mayor Buddy Dyer said in a statement on Friday. “We have learned from other communities that have experienced such great loss that this process will take time and should not be rushed.”

    Dyer said that creating this memorial, which will commemorate those who died at the gay nightclub shooting on June 12, will include input from victims, families and the larger community. Orlando will establish a community-based committee to oversee the process of creating the memorial.

    In addition, the city has partnered with the Orange County Regional History Center to collect and preserve letters, notes, signs and other tribute items from public memorials in Orlando. Details about the timeline and location of the memorial have not been established yet.

    Pussified, cloying, weak, estrogen-drenched reaction. Fuck this.

    Manhattan will soon be home to a memorial honoring the victims of the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando and other hate crimes, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Sunday before walking in the Pride March.

    He was briefly accompanied by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Mayor Bill de Blasio

    Clinton made a surprise appearance at the annual celebration of LGBT rights and culture, stepping off not far from the landmark Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village and marching for two blocks.

    The former secretary of state elicited deafening cheers and repeated chants of “Hil-la-ry” from revelers craning to catch a glimpse of her.
