Boxer Orlando Cruz to Honor Pulse Nightclub Victims

by Hayley Miller July 14, 2016

Updated July 18, 2016: Cruz won his match.

Original post from July 14, 2016:

Tomorrow, Orlando Cruz, the world’s first openly gay professional boxer, will dedicate his fight in Kissimmee to the Orlando victims.

Cruz lost four friends in the horrific shooting that killed 49 LGBTQ people and allied people -- almost all Latinx and young, 23 were Puerto Rican – at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. More than 50 were left wounded from the attack, which occurred on Latin night.

“At first, I was sad,” Cruz told the Orlando Sentinel last month. “Second, angry. I am very angry because people are homophobic, so they attacked my community. They attacked me.”

Cruz will ring ten bells to honor the victims at the match, which will be aired live on Univision International at 11:35 p.m. ET tomorrow night.

Cruz is presently the 5th ranked boxer in the world and reigning champ in the featherweight division. Cruz came out in 2013 and presently lives in Puerto Rico with his partner.

It’s time we put a stop to hate violence. Join us and show the world that love conquers hate. Urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims. Learn more at

Deodorant Ad Perfectly Nails What’s Wrong With The Trans Bathroom Debate

by Dan Tracer October 26, 2016

Leave it to a deodorant company to get what so many elected officials in this country can’t quite wrap their heads around — that there is no “one way” to express gender. And while right wing politicians and talking heads spend no shortage of time obsessing over how they, and most importantly their pure and [...]
