Queer Voices on Orlando | Electric City Magazine

In response to the recent homophobic violence in Orlando, Electric City Magazine has opened up a space for queer writers to share their perspectives, called Queer Voices on Orlando. As described on the first post: "In the early hours of Sunday, June 12, word began to spread of the latest mass shooting: a lone gunman had entered a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida and killed 50 people, with another 53 injured. Over the next few days, as the national conversation moved on to the implications of this attack for terrorism, gun control, and the American election, queer communities around the world remained shaken by this horrifying act of hate.Electric City Magazine reached out to a number of local queer writers and activists to hear their perspective on the issue."
