Pulse owner talks future for club at party to honor shooting victims

Author: Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – The owner of the Pulse nightclub says she has made no decisions about the future of the gay club where 49 patrons were massacred by a gunman.

But Barbara Poma says there definitely is a future for the nightclub.

Poma says it’s premature to say what, when or how the future will play out.

Poma spoke Thursday evening at a block party near downtown Orlando that she had put together for her staff, patrons and other people who wanted to support Pulse.

Rainbow-colored balloons festooned the street, a stage was set up for a band and booths sold Pulse T-shirts to help raise money for workers while the club is closed.
