Remembering Pulse

  • GALAEI hosted a community BBQ to honor the lives of Pulse victims on the one-year anniversary of the killings in Orlando.

We were honored to join with GALAEI, Philly's Queer Latin@ Social Justice organization, on Monday, June 12 for their community BBQ in memory and recognition of the 49 lives taken at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida last year. 

It was an opportunity to gather in love and community with fellow service providers, friends and community members, to affirm the importance of safe spaces and of supporting vulnerable members of our communities, particularly LGBTQ people of color.

Guests at the event enjoyed food, drinks, and music, and gathered for a moment of silence and a reading of the names of the 49 people whose lives were taken in the tragedy of June 12, 2016. 

We look forward to supporting GALAEI on their upcoming Alternative Youth Prom event on Friday, June 30, and collaborating with them on other projects to come.
