The Q Collective’s statement on the Colorado Springs shooting
On Saturday night, there was a mass shooting in a Colorado Springs nightclub, Club Q. Sadly, this is not the first attack on queer spaces. Our spaces are sacred for us and provide the home we so often seek where we can be our most authentic selves. To experience an attack in such spaces is particularly traumatizing. We at Q Collective, stand with those who were injured, who witnessed this hate crime in person, all of the families, and our own community. We join in grief as we all mourn the deaths of Raymond Green Vance (he/him), Kelly Loving (she/her), Daniel Aston (he/him), Derrick Rump (he/him), Ashley Paugh (she/her). We also hold space for all of us who experience this loss of safety and home, especially as we head into the holiday season.
