It Is What It Is


~~July 7, 2016~~ 



JULY 5, 2016

Puerto Rico has its first LGBT monument in the island’s history, which now is also a memorial to the victims of the Pulse shooting.

The monument is seven concrete pillars, each covered in colorful mosaics, and sits at the entrance of Sixto Escobar Stadium in San Juan’s Third Millennium Park, according to Noticel, a Puerto Rican publication.

The monument cost an estimated $9,000, funded by city taxpayers, Noticel reports.

It was designed by Alberto de la Cruz.

A section of the monument lists the names of the 49 people who lost their lives at the Pulse shooting, highlighting the names of the 23 Puerto Rican victims.

Next to the names, written in Spanish, is the quote,

“This tribute to life strengthens our commitment to fight hate — the product of homophobia — with love and respect.
