Andi and Lise spent some time trying to process the recent mass shooting at Club Q, an LGBTQ+ club in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They’re angry, devastated, and horrified. Sometimes, in order to find some support, you need to reach out and talk/vent and claim some space for yourself to do that. We hope that you’re able to do the same—to reach out to your networks and find some support. Because it’s okay to not be okay in the middle of all this horrible crap.
We encourage you, too, to reach out to local organizations in your communities that are doing the on-the-ground work for oppressed people and offer time and money to them so they can continue to provide care and resources to local communities.
There is a GoFundMe for survivors and victim of the Club Q shooting: LINK
As we recorded this episode on November 20, the day after the Club Q shooting, we’d also like to recognize that Nov. 20 is Transgender Day of Remembrance. If you’re so inclined and able, you might consider donating to local trans organizations that are doing the hard work of sustaining and building communities.
