A bar can be a refuge, a community hub, a home away from home, and a place to bond with our chosen families. This is especially true for bars that cater to people who identify as LGBTQ+. Seeing these community spaces violated by acts of terror and violence, an all-too-common occurrence, is especially troubling.
As our communities continue to mourn and heal, please consider making a donation to the Colorado Healing Fund, which strives to, “assist local communities with the financial, emotional and physical needs of victims of mass tragedies that occur in the state of Colorado.”
Yours in service,T. Cole Newton, President on behalf of the USBG Board of Directors
