Pulse Survivor Speaks OUT (AUDIO)

In this exclusive audio interview Brandon Wolf, Vice President of The Dru Project & a survivor of the Pulse Nightclub Massacre talks about his experience on that horrific night two years ago which claimed the lives of 49 people & left 53 injured most of whom were LGBTQ Latinx people & people of color. Not only was this one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history it was also the deadliest single incidence of violence against LGBTQ people in the U.S. When asked what his personal commitment is to LGBTQ equality Wolf stated, “I think we’ve made a ton of progress on equality. I think that we have a lot to be proud of as a community for how far we’ve come in such a short amount of time. There are a lot of movements in this country. There are a lot of disenfranchised groups that have been fighting for their rights as long as they can remember & they haven’t come nearly as close as we have. But my personal commitment is that we continue to move forward; that we continue to move towards a place where we don’t have to feel like we’re fighting for our rights every single day. A place where you can’t be fired just for being LGBTQ; a place where harassment and discrimination are not legalized; a place where I don’t have to go to a nightclub looking for the exits because I don’t fear someone is going to harm me for who I am. My personal commitment is to again empower young people, a new generation of leaders that are going to challenge the status quo & say we’ve done a hell of a lot of great work but we’re not done doing great work until everyone in this country, everyone no matter black, white, brown, blue, LGBTQ feel safe in their own skin & I’m personally committed to amplifying that message until we get it done."
