Statement of solidarity in response to Club Q attack  

We are deeply saddened by the violence and loss of life in Colorado Springs, United States. In memory of the victims and in solidarity with queer and trans communities impacted by this tragedy, we stand behind the thoughtful and powerful message issued by Sexuality and Gender Inclusive Education UBC (SOGI UBC).

The statement provides a reflection on this tragedy in the broader context of ongoing and persistent violence against queer and trans community members, and provides links to resources and supports. 

To our 2SLGBTQIA+ community: you are not alone. If you are feeling impacted, traumatized, and/or overwhelmed by this recent event, resources and supports are available.
