Description: LGBTQ activism against violence has spanned history, long before the mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL. LGBTQ activism has been largely effective and successful, and continues to occupy an impressive position in grassroots movements. Seasoned queer activists will share their experiences with LGBTQ activism and offer both lived and learned experience in combatting gun violence in an intersectional manner.
