Tragedy Strikes the Entertainment Capital of the World

Late last night Las Vegas became the site of the greatest mass shooting event in modern history.  For many in the LGBTQ+, this brings back memories of Orlando. As we assess the enormity of what has occurred, our family of LGBTQ publications have reached out to help tell the story we are unprepared to tell ourselves.

Many friends were attending or working the event. Many more sheltered in place in hotels, kitchens, theaters, and shops unable to leave until the early hours of the morning. Vegas is a place where the world comes to forget their worries, let loose and have a great time. It doesn't make sense to have this as a target.
