On June 12, we will mark one year since the day that 49 LGBTQ, mostly Latinx, lives were taken by a homophobic (and likely closeted) gunman at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. While one year is enough time for family, friends and loved ones to have progressed through the grieving process to an extent, grief can last for many years, and certainly, the effects of trauma can have a lifelong presence. One year later, both the LGBTQ and the Latinx communities (and the intersection of such) share the burden of a collective trauma — and this comes as an additional layer to the various traumatic experiences across a lifetime associated with being LGBTQ and/or of color in this society.
