This year’s World OutGames Miami 2017 will include a special Pulse memorial.
The event, which is billed as a celebration of sports, culture and human rights across the globe will last 10 days starting May 26. On June 1 OutGames will present “Pulse Points” from 6 to 10 p.m. at the New World Center in Miami Beach.
According to a press release, the interactive memorial will include dance, visual arts and poetry through 49 different artistic expressions. The number 49 signifies the 49 lives lost during the worst mass-shooting in U.S. history at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.
“World OutGames celebrates unity and inclusiveness, and we are proud to present Pulse Points as an artistic tribute to a tragic time in history,” World OutGames Miami Director of Cultural Arts Carol Coombes said in a statement. “This will be a space free of racism and bias that will transform negativity into a courageous forward direction, sending a global message of compassion, hope and love.”
“Pulse Points” will include up to 200 artists, including the Orlando Gay Chorus, Ray Sullivan, Dance NOW! Miami, Miami Gay Men’s Chorus and more.
Tickets start at $29 for students, seniors and Miami Beach Residents. General admission is $40 and VIP access is $140 — granting a rooftop cocktail reception. Tickets can be purchased at OutGames.org.
