#Orlando A Year Later: In Memory of Shane Tomlison

After the tragedy in Orlando exactly one year ago, I’ve attempted to remember at least some of the people who died there individually via my blog in order to humanize the tragedy. Shane was in his early thirties, and was making a name for himself as a singer and performer. There are numerous videos online of Shane singing, dancing, and performing. He was well known in the Orlando area prior to the loss of his life at Pulse on the 12th of June of 2016. Here, he seems outgoing, handsome, joyful, full of youth, and he’s also obviously very talented. This other video was posted as an homage by people who had the privilege of performing together with him.

Please have a Happy and Safe Pride Month!
