The Gay & Lesbian Alliance of North Texas (GALA) Board of Directors would like to extend our most sincere condolences to the victims and families affected by the horrific act of violence in Florida last night. We stand in solidarity with the Orlando LGBT community.

June is a special month to the LGBT community. It is when we celebrate our victories in equality, from the Stonewall Riots in 1969, widely considered the start of the gay rights movement, to just last year when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality (Obergefell v Hodges).

Among the events planned is the GALA Pride Party scheduled for this Thursday, June 16, at 5:30 p.m. at the Blue Martini in Plano. In light of today’s tragedy, GALA is changing its event to “Pride and Remembrance.”

“We will be collecting funds to support the victims and survivors of the Orlando attack,” said GALA President Jeanne Rubin. “We want to see the LGBT community come out in force! We will be vigilant, but most of all, WE WILL BE PROUD!”

The Board of Directors of GALA would also like to extend our thanks to Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, Police Chief Greg Rushin, and City Manager Bruce Glasscock, and Frisco Police Chief Darren Stevens, all of whom reached out personally to GALA today to offer sympathy and to answer any questions and concerns our community may have in light of this devastating news. Mayor LaRosiliere wanted to assure the LGBT community that we can feel safe in Plano, and both Chiefs of Police offered a police presence at GALA Pride events.

GALA will continue to update the LGBT community on this developing story via its Facebook page as information becomes available.
