Hearts and minds throughout the nation and the entire globe were with those who lost their lives and those who lost loved ones in this past weekend's terrorist attack at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando. Many came out to Milwaukee's Pride Parade on Sunday to pay tribute and to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community.
On Monday afternoon, City Hall joined in paying tribute and showing love, as well, hanging a large pride flag from the building.
The flag will hang from City Hall through Thursday. At the same time, flags across Milwaukee – and the country – were flown at half-staff.
City Hall will also host a vigil in remembrance of the Orlando victims tonight at 7 p.m. at the south end – the Water and Wells Street entrance – of the building. In case of inclement weather, the vigil will be moved into the City Hall rotunda.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
