A more coherent #StandWithOrlando post.

The latest Savage Lovecast opens with almost twenty minutes of Dan channeling grief and heartbreak and hope into words I needed, that a lot of us probably need.

I’m doing okay again. Got to work like a functional person and did not once start crying at my desk, although it was a close thing a couple of times. Especially when Dan started choking up. Especially when he talked about how incredible it is, what a breathtaking sign of progress in the midst of all the horror, that when a gay club was attacked and the police showed up, they were there to help.

There’s anger to be articulated too. Neither TDS nor TNS hit the right note for me, but Full Frontal was cathartically furious.

And Roy Zimmerman just put out a new recording of the incandescently bitter “Thoughts And Prayers.”

Speaking of: you may have heard that it’s a cheap gesture when politicians offer their “thoughts and prayers” after a mass shooting. Igor Volsky demonstrates that it is, in fact, a very expensive gesture. Hundreds of thousands of NRA dollars went into these gestures.

Equality Florida is handling the funds for victims and survivors of the Pulse massacre, and has other resources, particularly for family members.

People who don’t live in Florida, this is also a good time to throw a few dollars at your own local LGBT+ rights organization. Mine is MassEquality. The one where I grew up is Equality Maryland.

And as with any tragedy, if you’re eligible to give blood and don’t have an appointment scheduled…get one for next month. Or the month after that. For when the surge of interest has receded, but the need is still there.
