The LGBTQ Center stands with the victims of Orlando, Florida.  49 people were shot and 53 were wounded at a gay bar named Pulse on June 12th, 2016.  On the day of the shooting, we hosted a vigil at The LGBTQ Center with over 125 people in attendance.  Our Executive Director Eli Williams opened the vigil with these remarks, and then anyone in the audience was invited to share their feelings on the mic.  The vigil lasted over an hour and a half, and many left with a renewed sense of community.  We must process this grief, and then organize for lasting social change.  Say tuned, as we are planning a "Remembering Orlando" series of discussions for the near future.  We hope everyone practices self and collective care in these challenging times.
