Dance All Night



On June 11, 2016, at the Pulse nightclub, a popular bar and dance club for the LGBT community in Orlando, Florida, nearly 300 people were dancing and enjoying themselves during the weekly Saturday event, Latin Night. Shortly after the last call for drinks at 2:00 am on June 12, Omar Mateen, stormed into Pulse, and armed with a semi-automatic pistol and rifle, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime. It was the second deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBTQ+ people in United States history.

The photographs and text from Dance All Night are from memorial flyers honoring the life of each victim and were part of the large memorial located on the edge of the Pulse nightclub parking lot. Having been part of the memorial site for over a month, the flyers had become severely weathered and deteriorated, serving as metaphors of tragedy, loss, remembrance and honor.

The portrait photographs and text, which originally came from each victims’ social media presence, have been re-contextualized from the larger 8-1/2 x 11 inch flyers that were produced and printed by the Human Rights Campaign – Orlando/Central Florida to further reflect and contemplate the power of community.
