First Month Anniversary of Pulse Nightclub Attack

It’s Tuesday morning, July 12th. Today is the one-month anniversary of the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub killing 49 and wounding 53 beautiful LGBTQ souls. While there is a void where these beautiful Latinx brothers and sisters were taken from us, even in our grief our community (local and at large) has shown strength and become stronger. The amazing love I have seen in action as well as received by and extended from our community is something that has been deeply inspiring and life-changing.

We are first-hand witnesses to the fact that Love does conquer hate in the moment and in the long run.
