Forty nine innocent lives were lost in Orlando early this week – lost because of hate. We mourn the loss of innocent lives. We also condemn the harm caused by hate and will never succumb to it. We honor and support the victims of the shooting and do that by coming together as a community, as our community always has. The victims in the Orlando community lost their lives doing what they loved to do – celebrate, dance and come together in a safe space. We will honor them by doing the same on June 25th at NFWFWF’s Gay Pride event, demonstrating that love and support will always triumph over hate.
In the words of Lin Manual Miranda ” ….love is love is love is love is…..”
