There are so many people talking about this that are more articulate than I will ever be.
There are so many people talking about this who have suffered more, and who are closer to this issue, and who have been fighting the fight longer and harder. And I've been crying for four days because this awful awful thing happened on top of all the crap the LGBTAQ community already has to deal with.
The facts are that the above shootings all happened within a span of ten years.
The facts are that most of the guns used in these shootings were obtained legally.
The fact is that it shouldn't take an event like this for people to realize that racism and homophobia are living viruses that are still running rampant.
To my friends and fellows in the LGBTQA community, I love you all. You matter so much to me. Let me know if you need a crying buddy. I love you like hell.
