This week in (gay) Vancouver: remembering our brothers and sisters in Orlando

We sat down this morning to come up with our weekly list of what to do in Vancouver, but our hearts were too heavy after hearing the news of the gruesome overnight murders of fifty people in a Florida gay nightclub to even think about anything else.

Our thoughts and our hearts go out to those killed and injured in this senseless tragedy and the family, loved ones and community that must now rebuild as a result.

Now dubbed the worst mass shooting in United States history, this is an act that is hard to fathom from our vantage point in North America. The renewed calls for gun control in the U.S. will no doubt dominate the news cycle but, while important, let us not forget the men and women, our brothers and sisters, that were so senselessly murdered.
