The celebration and reflection we feel during Stonewall 50 / World Pride in NYC is an important statement attesting to the past, present, and future of the LGBT community. Beginning on the night of June 28, 1969, what started off as a police raid at the gay bar on Christopher Street soon became a multi-day act of resistance against decades of mistreatment and targeting. During the 50th anniversary of the uprising at the Stonewall Inn, we remember those who paved the way for the modern LGBTQ rights movement on the national and global scale.

A year ago this week the NGLCC community was heartbroken by a senseless attack on our community at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. We mourned, and still mourn, for those taken and offer love and support to the survivors and their families still in need of healing. Our national chamber network continues to stand firmly in support of our local affiliate chamber, MBA Orlando, as they continue to work with other Central Florida based LGBT organizations to keep our community safe and connected.
