Between the massacre at the Pulse Dance Club in Orlando, Florida, and the murders of both Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, it could certainly make one wonder if the world is truly changing for the better, especially for those of us who are members of the LGBTQIA+ Community.

I look forward to your comments, both on this WordPress Blog post, and this linked YouTube video, as well.
Thank you, and good day.
