Join us at SunCoast Cathedral MCC in Venice on Friday, June 9th for a special one-time viewing of the emotional and explosive documentary, “Upstairs Inferno.”

As we mark the first anniversary of the tragic Pulse massacre, we need to remember what happened 43 years prior at the Upstairs Lounge, a gay nightclub in New Orleans. Learn about how an arsonist blocked the exit doors and set fire to the building, resulting in the death of 32 people, mostly gay and lesbian.  In the same way that we remember the Holocaust, we need to acknowledge and recall these dark days of our history and use these painful memories to energize us to ensure this never happens again!

Hear first-hand from survivors as the events of this tragedy are retold… how a MCC Pastor and 1/3 of his congregation perished that night and how the pastor, who couldn’t make it through the barred windows, died as on-lookers below were unable to provide assistance. Learn about families efused to claim the bodies of family members. Four individuals were never identified and were buried in a common grave in pauper’s field.

A $5 donation will be accepted at the door. Following the film, there will be a time of sharing and discussion.
