Eduardo Morales, Ph.D., left, executive director of AGUILAS: El Ambiente, joined gay Brazilian artist Wilson Ferreira December 7 as they stood next to Ferreira's "Aegis" sculpture, a local memorial to the victims of the 2016 shooting at the Pulse LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The memorial is located at the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market Street. The memorial conceptualizes Aegis, a shield carried by Athena and Zeus in Homer's "Iliad." The memorial project was taken on by AGUILAS after San Francisco's Board of Supervisors provided $10,000 for a memorial in 2017.
