The club had turned off Chris Hayes’s voice and instead turned on ‘Seasons of Love’ from the RENT soundtrack. Each of the 49 faces flashed on the screens for a few seconds. Most of the bar didn’t really look at them, seemingly stuck between not wanting to mourn on their night out and not wanting to dance while in mourning.

No one really danced to that one, either.” Fusion reports from inside Orlando’s gay clubs one week after the Pulse shooting.
