"We are Matthew Shepard. We are Stonewall. We are Pulse." A passionate dissent of recent LGBT hate crimes

In response to the Orlando, Florida shooting at a gay nightclub, Pulse, AND the arrest of a man armed with assault weapons and explosives, on his way to attack attendees at LA Pride, my heart is heavy with so many reactions.

We have been disillusioned by recent political victories into the notion of societal equality. But we are not safe. We were never safe. They are murdering us.
