labladeThe LA Blade | Troy Masters - Last year on Pride morning, Los Angeles woke up to the horrific news that a madman, using semi-automatic weapons, had opened fire inside an Orlando LGBT nightclub, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others.

Our shock turned to momentary paralysis when that news was accompanied by a Santa Monica Police announcement that they had disrupted an attack on LA Pride, arresting a man carrying a large cache of semi-automatic weapons and explosives. We could have stayed home, but few did.
Instead, we resisted.

Angelenos poured into the streets of WeHo, turning their grief into defiance and refusing to cower. We turned our celebration of LGBT Pride into a show of force and a jubilant and loving tribute to the lives lost in Orlando.

At essence, that’s who we are.
