We Are Orlando
Our hearts are with the victims of the #PulseNightclub tragedy and their loved ones. We are inspired by the strength and resiliency of our LGBTQ communities in Orlando. We are with you in solidarity, unity, and love.
And we embrace Muslim communities, queer and not queer, with the same solidarity, unity, and love. Islamophobia will not divide us.
bell hooks says, “Without love, our efforts to liberate ourselves and our world community from oppression and exploitation are doomed.”
It is with love that we lift up our trans and Latinx kin who fell and were erased from media coverage of this tragedy. It is with love for indigenous communities that we remember Wounded Knee as the largest mass shooting in US history. It is with love that we acknowledge how this recent violence has desecrated both an LGBTQ sanctuary in Orlando as well as Ramadan – a Muslim holiday of peace.
