CREA stands in solidarity with the victims of mass shooting in Orlando

16 June 2016

CREA stands in solidarity with the LGBT community in the United States in light of the tragedy and mass shooting in an Orlando, Florida nightclub on June 12th, 2016. We acknowledge that we live in a time where increasing intimidation, harassment and violence against LGBT and Muslim communities are on the rise around the world. We affirm every person’s right to express their sexuality without threat, oppression, stigma or discrimination. We continue to support LGBT and other communities & movements so that diverse and nuanced narratives emerging from them can challenge homophobia, Islamaphobia, different forms of fundamentalisms and state violence. In this hour of grief, we extend our condolences to the Orlando community and the families of the 50 killed.
