Almost half of those killed at Pulse were Puerto Rican. The monument is located in Third Millennium Park in San Juan:
At the base of the monument is a plaque highlighting the names of the 23 Puerto Rican victims killed in the massacre, with the additional 26 victims listed below.
Alongside the names, Spanish text reads: “This tribute to life strengthens our commitment to fight hate — the product of homophobia — with love and respect. Our slogan resounds in all our hearts: Love is love, is love, is love…”
The final phrase appears to be a reference to Puerto Rican playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda’s speech at the 2016 Tony Awards, just hours after the Pulse shooting, where the straight artist performed a powerful sonnet he had written for the victims of the massacre.
