I'm gay and Muslim. I want to tell the Muslim community the Islamophobia being spewed now doesn't reflect my values as a gay man. #Orlando

This is the third most deadly attack on US soil (after 9/11 and Oklahoma City) and most deadly mass shooting in US history. #Pulse

I cannot tell you how many long nights I have spent at #pulsenightclub. This breaks my heart, and I fear that we are forgetting how to love.
