Video: Healing Through Art, Dance and Music (Pulse - Unify Over Violence)

Written by Shane Smith, Editor, Stonewall Gazette

While writing the post for Pulse Nightclub Massacre: Year End Special Video Report I was reminded of how powerful art, dance and music are to us in the LGBTQ community. I can think of no better example of this than the deeply moving tribute song, "Pulse", which was created within hours of the Pulse Nightclub Massacre, by openly gay singer-songwriters, Brandon Skeie and Eli Lieb. The song gave much comfort to those of us who grieved this senseless loss of lives at the hands of a terrorist.

Muse Dance Company & MusEffect produced a loving tribute of their own. The dance piece, "Pulse - Unify Over Violence", was dedicated to the victims of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting.

Muse Dance Company & MusEffect share about their project: "This Summer we teamed up with Muse Media and the incredible artists of The Muse Experience of 2016 to develop a piece that is close to our hearts. It is our mission to see this PSA initiate the conversation needed most in our society right now. There are far too many humans loosing their lives over nothing they've done but pure and simply because of who they are. Why not choose to celebrate diversity, practice tolerance and learn from those who've ended their stories far too soon. Let us put an end to these senseless deaths and unify over violence." Watch the video below.
