The #HonorThemWithAction campaign encourages actions to end LGBTQ bigotry

 

As we celebrate the resiliency of the LGBTQ community this Pride month, the Commission stands in solidarity with LGBTQ and Latinx communities across the country in remembering the 49 victims of the heartbreaking massacre at Pulse one year ago today.

The Commission recognizes the ongoing grief and trauma among LGBTQ young people in the aftermath of this tragedy, compounded by ongoing acts of hate against community members based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, and religion in Massachusetts and across the country.

Today, we honor the lives of those who were taken. Now more than ever, we remain resolute in working together toward a world the embraces the dignity, bravery, and uniqueness of every young person, regardless of who they are.
