Pulse Nightclub Will Forever Be An LGBT Memorial After Orlando Buys It For $2.25 Million!

no title

This is the happiest news on earth!

As you surely remember, the LGBT community lost 49 of its members when a gunman opened fire on Pulse Nightclub back in June — marking the worst mass murder in modern American history.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump's surprise ascension to the White House on Tuesday was just another setback for queer Americans… but we're happy to say there's still some good in the world.

Mayor Buddy Dyer revealed the Florida city's $2.25 million plan via video earlier this week, saying:

We will rise again.

It's been almost three months since the LGBT community lost 49 of our brothers and sisters in a mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, but things are slowly starting to get back to normal.

While we'll never get the lives we lost back, the events in Pulse Nightclub have led to some positive changes — including a ton of advocacy from your favorite celebs.

However, for survivor Tony Marrero, he owes his fighting spirit completely to gay icon Katy Perry!

And wouldn't you know it, Ellen DeGeneres just so happened to hear about Tony's obsession with the Olympic song Rise… so she set up the Floridian with the surprise of his life — meeting Katy on national television!

We already knew this was going to be emotional just based on the topic… but watching Katy tear up as soon as she hit the Ellen stage sure brought tears to our eyes as well.

It should be interesting to see how both sides react to this!

In a particularly peculiar turn of events, Hillary Clinton's recent rally in Kissimmee, Florida on Monday had a rather infamous surprise guest.

That's because Seddique Mateen, the father of the Pulse Nightclub shooter, was not only in attendance… he was literally standing right behind the Democratic nominee!

As you surely remember, Seddique's son Omar Mateen shot and killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando back in June, and it's still unclear whether his motivations were due to his sexuality or an alleged allegiance to ISIS.

Following her speech, Mz. Clinton's team released a statement saying while they did not explicitly invite Mr. Mateen to the event… all are welcome, so they never would have turned him away.

Despite his son's deplorable act, Seddique maintained a positive outlook on the upcoming election, and even spoke out against Donald Trump, telling reporters:

Orlando Shooting Victim's Father Refused To Claim Dead Son's Body After Finding Out He Was Gay

no title

This man did not deserve to have a child in the first place.

In what's easily the most gruesome attack on American soil in modern history, 49 people were victims of a hate crime at an LGBT Latino nightclub in Orlando, Florida two weekends ago .

Unfortunately, the ugliness did not stop with their deaths… because we're hearing that one man who lost his son refused to claim the body after finding out his son was actually gay.

According to a new report, the dad did not want to betray his Christian roots and chose to entirely disrespect his "loved one" instead.

Thankfully, other family members of the unidentified man did eventually step forward to claim the body, but we just cannot imagine letting anything — even religion — take priority over your murdered child.

This disgusting behavior is nothing new for the LGBT community, but that doesn't make the circumstances any less difficult to grasp.

Rest in peace, brother.

This is the gayest news we've heard all day!

While the LGBT community may have lost 49 of our own in the worst mass shooting in American history just two weeks ago, President Barack Obama is doing everything in his power to right those wrongs.

Sure, many corrupt politicians are still keeping us unprotected thanks to their asinine stance on gun control, but the President decided to one-up offer something while we wait — the country's first-ever National Monument dedicated to the LGBT community:

The Stonewall National Monument!!!

As many of our readers are already know, the 1969 police raids on Stonewall Inn marked the beginning of the fight for equal rights for our people… and we're so happy to see that now honored on a national scale.

President Barack Obama made the announcement in a heartfelt Instagram post on Friday, saying:

Man Claiming To Be Orlando Shooter's Gay Ex-Lover Says Pulse Attack Was Sparked By Revenge Against LGBT Latinos!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLatinoliciousR.I.P.Sad SadViolenceScary!Viral: NewsLGBT

Let's see how the NRA tries to spin this one…

When news first broke that 49 individuals were killed in a mass shooting during Latino Night at a gay club in Orlando two weekends ago, our initial reaction was that this was most likely a hate crime and not a terrorist act.

However, once the media found out more about shooter Omar Mateen's supposed ties to ISIS, the tragic story immediately became a tale of modern, home-grown terrorism in America.

Well, a new report out of Univision is once again painting the picture that the attack on Pulse Nightclub was provoked solely based on the people inside… because one of Omar's alleged gay ex-lovers just came forward with new information!

Apparently, a Puerto Rican man — who wished to keep his identity a secret by wearing a mask — spoke to Maria Elena Salinas on Tuesday about his affair, where he claimed that the shooting was inspired by revenge against LGBT Latinos, not terrorism, saying:
