Opinion: LGBTQ+ community facing more attacks
California Pride Protest
May 17 was International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia. This year’s theme was “Together Always: United in Diversity’’, acknowledging that our marginalized siblings within the LGBTQ+ community (black, indigenous, people of color, disabled folk, and others), are going to face greater discrimination and violence, and that we have to change that and take action to ensure everyone has their deserved right to a happy and long life without fear of violence or hate.
