On June 12th, 2016, our community was rocked by the massacre that claimed the lives of 49 people. The horror unfolded in the middle of Pride month on Latin night at Pulse Nightclub, a popular gathering place for young LGBTQ people of color.

Shock and disbelief turned to grief and anger. And at a moment when some sought to meet fear with fear and hate with hate, we saw a community pull together across difference, united in a commitment to challenge bigotry and hatred, not nourish it. A deep resilience emerged from survivors, the victims’ loved ones, Orlando residents and leaders, and LGBTQ people and our allies across the country and around the world. People held vigils and fundraisers to directly aid the families of those killed and the survivors and committed to combatting hatred of all kinds.

The Orlando community was buoyed by the outpouring of generosity, as cities, towns, churches, and families stood with us in our grief.

As the one year mark of Pulse approaches, Orlando’s LGBTQ community invites you to join us once again to #HonorThemWithAction.
