it doesn't matter if you're gay, straight bi, pan, poly, demi, ace, trans, cis, non binary, etc. it doesn't matter if you're unsure of your gender or sexuality. it doesn't matter if you're atheist, muslim, christian, jewish, etc. we're all people and NO ONE DESERVES TO BE TREATED LIKE CRAP BECAUSE OF THESE THINGS. WE ARE ALL EQUAL. ?????? ~ donnie ? #prayfororlando #pride #weareorlando #lgbt

Like so many of you, I've read the posts and articles, I've watched the news coverage, heart wrenching tributes and have been following the vigils that have so beautifully popped up all over the world in honor of the 49 individuals who so tragically lost their lives during the Orlando shooting. It's overwhelming. Its heartbreaking. It's scary. But, above all of these emotions, I feel proud of my community. I walk around my neighborhood and see the flags are all at half staff. There are signs, photos and candles in the streets, you will also see candles burning on porches or in windows. I see people coming together to gather donations for the families, partners and friends of the 49 people we have ALL lost. I see unity. I see love. I see so many people making the choice to love out loud and embrace one another. Rather than vacate the streets, bars, clubs and restaurants… we are out in our neighborhoods and communities offering support to one another. I am so proud of my community and of my friends who are posting and sharing and speaking up. The events that took place are horrific and I've cried daily while scrolling through the names and reading all of the posts. The mix of emotions are close to unbearable and I know that so many others are feeling the same. So, if anyone needs to talk, wants to vent, cry, hug… I hope you'll reach out to myself or anyone else you feel safe with. May we all find some light and lesson during this dark time and flood the world and social media with love and ongoing healing ??? #prayforOrlando #Orlandostrong #SanDiego #sendingloveandlight #energy #love #hope #stopthehate #loveislove #NoH8 #June #healing #manifestlove #educate #lesson #Prideflag #Sunday #Americanflag #timeforchange #standup #speakup #weareALLOrlando #PulseNightclub
