On June 12, 2016, at a small nightclub in Orlando, the unspeakable happened when a gunman entered and began shooting. The Pulse tragedy is the largest mass shooting in U.S. history and those victimized were primarily members of the LGBTQ+/Latino community. Within hours, LGBTQ+ community leaders were already mobilizing to help victims, and within days, an informal alliance of organizations and individuals came together to work cooperatively to address the senseless tragedy. Over the next few months, the all-volunteer alliance became an essential source of information and support for victims, their families and the LGBTQ+ community.

Today, the organizations that came together after Pulse have turned tragedy into hope by forming One Orlando Alliance. The Alliance serves existing and emerging LGBTQ+ organizations, while providing an inclusive platform for diverse perspectives and voices from all who make up our community. We will continue to bring together LGBTQ+ organizations and work to transform Central Florida into an accepting and unified community for all. As we look to the future, the fundamental values of inclusivity, respect, communication, and collaboration – that originally brought us together – remain the cornerstone of our efforts as we honor those we have lost with purposeful action that will allow our community to thrive in the future.
