Mother Jones: Orlando's Pulse Nightclub Was Founded by a Woman Whose Brother Died from AIDS

the Pulse nightclub was co-founded by Barbara Poma with her friend Ron Legler in 2004. Poma's brother, John, died from AIDS in 1991. "Being raised in a strict Italian family, being gay was frowned upon. However, when John came out to his family and friends, the family dynamic transitioned from a culture of strict tradition to one of acceptance and love," the club's website says of Poma's brother. "It was important to create an atmosphere that embraced the gay lifestyle with décor that would make John proud. Most importantly, [we] coined the name Pulse for John's heartbeat—as a club that is John's inspiration, where he is kept alive in the eyes of his friends and family."

[update 21:01] IS reklamiert Verantwortung für Bluttat von Orlando für sich: „Unbestätigten Medienberichten zufolge stand Mateens Name auf einer FBI-Liste mit IS-Sympathisanten. Außerdem soll er vor der Tat die Nummer des Rettungsdienstes, 911, angerufen und sich zu Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi bekannt haben, dem Anführer der Terrormiliz.

Rukmini Callimachi von der NYTimes: „ISIS' official news wire, the Amaq News Agency, has just claimed the Orlando shooting. […] Alert was posted on Amaq's Telegram channel circa 2 pm EST meaning 12 hrs after attack (well under 2 days it took post San Bernardino)“.

Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people inside a gay nightclub early Sunday morning, was gay, both his ex-wife and a former classmate have reportedly claimed. […]

His account, via the Palm Beach Post: He said Mateen asked him out romantically. “We went to a few gay bars with him, and I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer,” he said.

He believed Mateen was gay, but not open about it. Mateen was awkward, and for a while the classmate and the rest in the group of friends felt sorry for him. “He just wanted to fit in and no one liked him,” he said. “He was always socially awkward.”
