Monday, June 12th will mark one year since 49 LGBTQ and allied people were taken from us at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL. Last year, we gathered the community twice to honor them, first the night of the attack, and then again a few weeks later as we learned more and more about those taken.
The Pulse massacre was at a location and on a night where Latinx LGBTQ people were particularly targeted for violence, so OUTMemphis is making sure to center Latinx LGBTQ voices and help make this vigil as comfortable a space as possible for Latinx LGBTQ people to attend. To help us, please:
- Share this invitation with anyone Latinx and LGBTQ from your organizations. Spread the word that we are looking for speakers and to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if they are interested in speaking.
- Share this invitation with any Spanish translators you have in your organization. We want to have translation support for our English-speaking presenters as well for the full benefit of anyone who is LGBTQ, Spanish-speaking, and in attendance at the vigil.
This year we will honor the victims with action. Please join OUTMemphis on Monday, June 19 at OUTMemphis as we gather to reflect and re-galvanize our efforts to rise as a stronger, more connected community.
We will gather at OUTMemphis on Monday, June 19th at 8pm. More details will follow.
