It’s the story of Daniel as he navigates love and a difficult relationship with his mom. The story shifts suddenly as the characters learn about the shooting at Pulse Nightclub, the place that was instrumental in their formative years. As it was in real life for us here, everything kind of stops as this chosen family processes this tragedy in our hometown. From Here is a respectful tribute to a difficult time in many of our lives, and an important reminder of the significance of safe spaces like Pulse in the lives of members of the LGBT+ community.
Now, more than six years after the tragedy that changed Orlando, From Here is more important than ever. It’s one perspective of life in the aftermath of a mass shooting. It’s a reminder of the lasting impacts of senseless loss due to gun violence. And it’s also a story of hope; a reminder of why these memories matter; and the unification of people in the aftermath of horror. It’s about love, friendship, and family.
