Love will always win, that's what I keep telling myself. When I awoke yesterday to the news of the senseless murders of almost 50 gay men, women and allies, and more terribly wounded in Orlando, I was sickened and saddened.
The fact that it was time to celebrate L.A.'s annual Gay Pride Parade made the loss even more of an outrage. There was no doubt in my mind that I owed it to all those who were killed to go out and show my solidarity, love and support for my LGBTQ community.
How long before this mass shooting is already old news and just becomes another everyday occurrence that people just accept as the norm in America. We can't let this happen ever again, and we can't allow LGBT people to be the target of such hatred anymore.
I'm all talked out. Keep safe, tell your loved ones you love them and continue to live your life with pride...
