PAJF Honors Orlando's Loss...

In the wake of our community's tragic loss in Orlando, we here at PAJF are shaken and sad. We recognize this attack as an act of violence against queer safety, queer visibility, and queer worth. As our communities continue to join together throughout Pride month, we can't avoid acknowledging the limitations of our safety. We may even fear the spaces in which we are visible. But we must NEVER lose sight of our worth -- as individuals, as a collective community, as a movement toward equality. Yes: exercise caution; experience grief; join together with others to process the terrible events in Orlando. But remember also --  with pride in our identities comes joy in our lives, and with that joy comes the most meaningful act of resistance we could ever find: hope.
