I wrote up a comic about my feelings from today in response to the Orlando shooting & the almost shooting at LA pride today. Today was a day full of terrible LGBTQ+ news & also full of LGBTQ+ people pushing past it & refusing to be silenced by bigots and homophobes. It takes bravery to get up every day and be proud and OUT. Hug your loved ones and be safe

I didn’t have anything truly useful to add to the SYTN blog today. My mind is still focused on the tragedies in Orlando. My friend Stevie Wilson drew a comic to express her feelings and I am sharing it here. I love my friends and family in the LGBTQ+ community. I will stand with them in this fight for equality and change in the world so that they don’t have to be afraid. No one should EVER have to go through life afraid of being who they are. <3
