Syracuse LGBTQ+ advisory group honors victims of Colorado shooting
The Syracuse LGBTQ+ Advisory Board marked Sunday’s Transgender Day of Remembrance with a tribute to the victims of the Club Q shooting in Colorado.
A gunman killed at least five people at the LGBTQ+ nightclub in Colorado Springs on Saturday evening. More than two dozen were injured.
The city of Syracuse’s advisory board issued a statement of support to the community of Colorado Springs.
"Tragically, no community is safe from individual acts of violence but all must join together in rejecting hatred and intolerance in any form," the board said in the statement.
The board advocates for the LGBTQ+ community in Syracuse and provides feedback on city policies.
