It was one year ago today that we lost 49 beloved members of our LGBTQ community. The tragedy of what happened at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016 was a horrific reminder that LGBTQ people in this country – especially those of color – are still not safe. HuffPost reporter Alex Berg released a video today speaking with 2 of the survivors of the shooting.
As we celebrate LGBTQ Pride this year, we must remember to keep resistance at the forefront. Pride started as a revolt against the power structures in place and we must continue to keep it that way. Tonight, GO Magazine will be at Stonewall Inn to honor those who lost their lives at #PulseOrlando. We hope you can hold a moment of silence throughout your day as well.
