Our hearts are once again breaking—this time for those we lost last night in Colorado Springs.

To the youngest of us — those who are just beginning to find their place in this world — these actions will not go unchecked. There are folks who have dedicated their lives to fostering a world where you can live freely and fearlessly with pride and power.

We love you, support you, and will fight every day for your safety.

Part of that fight is directing attention to the community organizations working on the ground in Colorado Springs. If you want to support the Club Q shooting victims and their families, check out a list of organizations and resources for the LGBTQ+ community in Colorado Springs.

It is important on days like today to prioritize self-care and mental health. imi is a terrific mental health tool created for LGBTQ+ youth by LGBTQ+ youth that can prove incredibly helpful in identifying coping skills and managing stress. Take time for yourself today. You’re important.

We’re in this together.
