Pulse

I was still five months from being out when it happened, but I remember it very clearly. When the Pulse shooting occurred, the over all talk was about mental health, gun regulation, and in some circles, "Islamic terrorism", but never about "hey y'all, this was a serious fucking hate crime against an entire population."

Day of Remembrance... Continue Reading →
