Our hearts are broken for the victims of the massive hate crime that took place last night at Pulse Night Club in Orlando. 50 are dead and 53 injured. One shooter whose motivation has been now revealed by his family as homophobia is responsible, and was shot dead by police. This is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub Was founded by a woman whose brother died from AIDS… she “coined the name Pulse for John’s heartbeat—as a club that is John’s inspiration, where he is kept alive in the eyes of his friends and family.” Our hearts are with the dead, their friends and families, everyone from Pulse, and to LGBTIQs everywhere, and those in Los Angeles, Detroit, Key West, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. who are marching in Pride Parades at this very moment….
