LISTEN: Our Community Reactions to the Deadly Shooting at Pulse Nightclub

Traditionally, it's been the bars, nightclubs and community centers that we have turned to when seeking safe spaces. Sadly, the tragic events of June 12, 2016, reminded us that our safety and well-being can never be taken for granted.

Many people in the gay community took to their safe spaces online in the aftermath of the murders. Blogs, websites and social media networked to share information, thoughts and condolences regarding the Pulse Nightclub Massacre.

One of those online safe places is the podcast, "Left of Str8". Host Scott Fullerton's new podcast deals with the shock and grief that we all felt upon hearing the horrific news.

"I need to handle my thoughts and grief over today's mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, at the LGBT Nightclub, Pulse," Fullerton shared.

We are our own light in all this darkness by virtue of our community's ability to reach out and connect with each other.

Join Scott Fullerton in conversation with a cross section of 7 people (and listeners) from around America to discuss the Pulse Nightclub Massacre.
