The names of the 49 victims of the Orlando shooting have been seen across the World. The next of kin have claimed the bodies of their loved ones for burial.
In a horrible turn of events making the tragedy even more unbearable due to continued bigotry so many LGBTQ face daily, one father has refused to claim the body of his gay son, simply because he did not approve of his sexual orientation.
The Orlando Latino has reported that family members in Orlando did agree to claim the body of Puerto Rican young man. His name has been kept private and been given a proper burial.
“The tale is part of the untold stories of the Latino victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre,” writes Maria Padilla, who says the blog confirmed the story with several sources.
