I ask that our sisters and brothers do not respond with further hatred, because that solves nothing.
Instead I ask that we continue to educate, continue to find common ground, act in solidarity with all those who are persecuted, speak out against those who will use this atrocity to further a fascist agenda, protect those most vulnerable in our community and the wider world.”

Peter Tatchell
LGBT campaigner
We condemn those who want to use this slaughter to demonise and scapegoat the Muslim community, the vast majority of whom deplore terrorism as much as everyone else and who have often been its victims, such as in the September 11 2001 and July 7 2005 outrages.
Our thanks to the many Muslims who have spoken out against the Orlando killings and expressed their solidarity with the LGBT community.”

Clare Solomon
No Pride in Tory Cuts
Let us be clear: this was a homophobic attack, an act of terrorism against the LGBT community. We call on all communities to fight homophobia and racism — an attack on one is attack on us all.”

Sue Caldwell
LGBT+ Against Islamophobia
This horrific attack underlines the fact that homophobia continues to be a part of life in the West today.
This man was born and brought up in the US, where Establishment figures routinely espouse anti-LGBT+ sentiments.
We will resist any attempt to use this atrocity to whip up hatred against Muslims.
The response from the LGBT+ communities so far has been brilliant - a strong desire to stand united and continue our fight against homophobia and transphobia wherever it may come from.”
