The LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be safe from violence. Our hearts are with the five victims killed, as well as the many who were injured and survived the shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs. We stand with their families and friends as we condemn this crime of hate. 

The endless violence is fueled by lawmakers who would rather pass anti-LGBTQ legislation than common-sense gun safety bills, and social media companies and gun manufacturers who care more about profits than our livelihoods.
