102 Heartbeats

Added on by Melody Santiago.

O, Miami believes poetry has the power to lend people a voice after unspeakable events.

As we remember the victims of the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fl on June 16, 2016 and support their friends and families, we offer you an opportunity for poetic expression.

The hope is that your poem, which will be archived on lnstagram at @102latidos, along with countless others, will help someone respond, process, or even heal.

In the tradition of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, an icon of LGBTQ visibility, we also hope the archive will become a living document (both digital and material) open for contributions indefinitely.

To contribute, write a poem on a sheet fit for a square photo, post it on Instagram, and tag us at @102latidos.
