My heart still and will always ache for those affected in the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando last weekend.
I’ve lived in Florida since I was 2 years old.
I’ve lived in Orlando for 20 years.
I’ve been an LGBT ally for all of my life.
I’ve publicly identified as a lesbian for nearly a year.
To say I’m affected is an understatement.
I may not ever have the words to describe my feelings for what happened to my people in my city. Until I do, I’ll keep sharing information on my own and on SBC’s social media pages.
As soon as we all can, we go on with our lives because living normally is our biggest and best act of defiance against terror.
What We’re Doing: On Friday, June 17th, 2016, SBC, LLC will be donating a significant portion of #SBC16 ticket sale proceeds and affiliate sales earnings from purchases made through its links to Equality Florida.
How You Can Help: We’ve set up two ways for you to help us donate.
- Add a donation as small as $5 to your #SBC16 ticket order, and we’ll pass along both your donation and a significant portion of the proceeds received from your total ticket purchase to Equality Florida.
- Click on any of the links we provide on this website or our social media sites and make a purchase. We will donate a significant portion of our earned affiliate sales made from those stores on June 17th to Equality Florida.
