LGBT and Latino Elders Stand in Solidarity on Orlando Shooting | La Comunidad LGBT Latina y Personas de Edad Avanzada Estan Solidarios ante la Tragedia en Orlando

[New York, NY] As leaders from organizations working to advance equality and to counteract discrimination against the LGBT and Latino communities, we unite today to condemn the outrageous violence that took the lives of more than 50 of our brothers and sisters last night in Orlando.
