Houston Stands With Orlando
While I was spending Sunday on the East Coast battling trolls on my Twitter feed who didn't like what I had to say about the Orlando 'terriss' attack, back home in Houston Ashton Woods was busy organizing a vigil at Hermann Park so that the H-town TBLG community and our allies could #StandWithOrlando.
Ashton in addition to being one of our standout community advocates, also happens to be a member of the Houston chapter of Black Lives Matter. The goal of the event was for the community to speak up, and also declare that we were going to continue to fight against the oppression of BTLG people.
Here's the link to Ashton's post from his Strength In Numbers blog about the Houston vigil and some of the photo's from it.
