PHOTO ESSAY BY DONNA ACETO | On June 16, several hundred people gathered the National September 11 Memorial at the World Trade Center for a somber commemoration of the victims of the previous weekend’s mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. There, they gathered around the Survivor Tree – a pear tree saved during the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and replanted where they stood, opposite the memorial’s waterfalls – and hung rainbow-hued ribbons. Representatives were on hand from the city’s first responder units, including FireFLAG, the group representing LGBT firefighters, and Brooke Guinan, the FDNY’s first out transgender female firefighter.
