The event in Orlando, of course, not only struck the LGBT community but the Latino community as well. In response to the tragedy – and the week of anger and grief that has followed – Black penned this tough, moving essay about what we, as fellow human beings, owe to all those who we have lost.
Disarm HateFor the last six months I've been in Vancouver filming When We Rise, an ABC miniseries on the history of the LGBT rights movement. That's what I was doing when I learned that 49 LGBT souls – the majority Latino – had been murdered in Orlando in a gay club, traditionally a place of refuge. That day, we were filming a scene re-creating the 2009 National Equality March on Washington. And so, between takes of Guy Pearce unfurling a massive banner that read "Equality Across America," we tuned in to learn the names of the sons, daughters, allies, and parents who were ripped from our arms by gunfire and hate.
In so many ways, When We Rise is a testament to how far we've come, a tribute to those who have dedicated their lives to bringing us this close to safety and equality. Orlando served as a terrible reminder of just how much more we have left to do. The shock, the hurt, the anger, and the heartbreak left me winded, as were so many other Americans who love our country. It also made it clear to me that if we are ever to overcome homophobia, we must create better understanding of who LGBT people truly are by confronting the three worst culprits of LGBT misinformation: science, the state, and religion.
