  1. To elevate the lives of the 49 lives that were taken from us on June 12, 2016.
  2. To elevate the local Coalition members.
  3. To elevate the work Florida LGBTQ+ advocates have done this year to combat anti-LGBTQ+ political attacks.

Please note:

“Latinx” is a gender-neutral term that includes all members of communities, however, we recognize that not everyone in our communities use the term. Please use terms and language that resonates with your audiences when posting i.e. Latino, Latina, Hispanic, etc. 

LGBTQ+ is the inclusive queer term which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer and/or questioning. While terms like this attempt to acknowledge many different groups, it’s worth noting that the LGBTQ+ community is arguably not one group, but rather it is made up of many separate subsects not all in agreement on all terminology.

It’s been six years since 49 lives were stolen from us, yet hate-fueled violence and legislative attacks on LGBTQ+ people are constant threats. We #RememberPulse, grieve the lives taken, and work for LGBTQ+ equality and prevent gun violence.

Nosotros, #RememberPulse, lloramos por las vidas arrebatadas y trabajamos por la igualdad LGBTQ+ y la prevención de la violencia armada.

Disarm Hate: the Deadly Intersection of Guns and Hate Crimes

When LGBTQ+ people’s rights and existence is put up for debate, it creates a culture in which hate-motivated crimes are commonplace. Hate is far more deadly when armed with a gun. We must work to #DisarmHate. #RememberPulse


Anti-trans violence is an epidemic, especially for Black trans women. State lawmakers who are ramping up anti-trans rhetoric and attacks on trans rights add to a culture of transphobia. #DisarmHate #Pulse6YearsLater
