Paddle Out for Orlando


Santa Cruz LGBTQI+ community and allies joined in the ocean in solidarity with the 49 brothers, sisters, and non-binary kin whose lives were taken on June 12, 2016 at the Orlando Pulse gay bar.

The memorial took place on West Cliff Drive, where community members read the 49 names and shared words of reflection.

Simultaneously, others paddled out into the ocean and mirrored the memorial from the water. The memorial ended by tossing flowers into the ocean and an energetic splashing of the water.
