Pulse Mural Unveiling by Pridelines in Miami: A Tribute to the 49 Pulse Nightclub Victims Featuring Artist TeePop

Next week, on June 12th, Pridelines is hosting a heartfelt event in Miami—the unveiling of the “Pulse Mural.” This mural, created in collaboration with local artist TeePop, honors the 49 lives lost and countless others affected by the Pulse Nightclub shooting. The event will be held at 5525 NW 7th Ave., starting at 6:30 PM, and is open to the public. It’s a chance for the community to come together, remember, and show solidarity.

The mural is a powerful symbol of the LGBTQ+ community’s strength and unity in the face of tragedy. Dr. Edward Summers, Executive Director of Pridelines, and TeePop will share insights into the mural’s creation and significance. The evening will include speeches from community leaders, survivors, and advocates, and a moment of silence to honor the victims. The mother of one of the Pulse victims, who sponsored the mural, will also be there to share her personal reflections, adding a deeply emotional touch to the event.

TeePop, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, started drawing portraits at just five years old. She further developed her talent in New York City before moving to Miami to earn her graphic design degree at the International Fine Arts College. Miami has been her home for over twenty years now. TeePop’s work blends fine art and graphic design, using paper, acrylics, spray paint, and other materials to create portraits that tell the stories of urban life and iconic figures
