Toronto pulse nightclub

Toronto bar pays tribute to Pulse nightclub in Orlando

Toronto's still reeling from the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. And to pay tribute to the victims, the Beaver on West Queen West mounted the Pulse logo in its street-facing window, reports the Canadian Press.

Local designer Rob Shostak approached the Beaver about about putting up the logo. "In the end, every queer space is a Pulse. Someone feels like that is their safe space, and that was taken away from us with the attack. Or, more specifically, we became more aware of our spaces as a result of the attack," he said to the Canadian Press.

On Sunday evening, hundreds gathered for a vigil at the Barbara Hall Park beside The 519, an LGBTQ community centre. And the steps of the 519 are still covered with candles, signs, rainbow flags and flowers dedicated to the 49 individuals who were murdered at Pulse.
