Standing with our LGBTQIA2S+ community
On a day when we remember those we’ve lost to anti-transgender violence, we also bear witness to more extreme violence and grieve the lives lost in Colorado Springs last night.
Like you, I woke up to the harrowing news of the mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs. It is particularly brutal news to stomach on Transgender Day of Remembrance. On a day when we remember those we’ve lost to anti-transgender violence, we also bear witness to more extreme violence and grieve the lives lost in Colorado Springs last night. Every member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community deserves to live a life of dignity free from violence and hatred. Now, more than ever, we must stand up against this type of hate. Please know that FLC will continue to work to create a safe environment and support the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
