An Orlando museum has gathered together a collection of items relating to the massacre at the Pulse glbti nightclub in which 49 people were massacred by a crazed gunman. The collection, which is being readied for public display, includes items as diverse as the toilet hand basin which fleeing patrons used to climb up to an escape window and mementos and personal items placed at several memorial sites which sprang up around the city in the tragedy's aftermath. More confronting will be the display of a bullet-riddled door behind which victims tried to hide and a pair of bloodies shoes worn by a surgeon as he tried to save the lives of the critically injured. The items are being incorporated into an already-planned exhibit titled Pride, Prejudice and Protest: GLBT History of Greater Orlando which is scheduled to open on October 1st.
