"My virtual reality piece is to honor the lives of the 49 souls we lost at PULSE nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016. As an active member of the LGBTQA community of New York City, I have to realize, it could just as easily have been any one of us, at any gay bar we’ve ever been to. The common ‘gay bar’ is actually a place where many seek solace, family and inclusive community…and our space was betrayed. I created this virtual reality of love because when one of us in the community hurts, we all hurt. This piece is my opportunity to let the world know we will not be torn apart by hate."
