This weekend's violence was a political demand for a world where hate and fear of "other" are the norm. We will never accept such a narrow future. The coming days will be trying for the queer, Latinx, and Muslim communities, and especially for the many people who live in their intersections. Stay safe, and know that you'll always be welcome at Arisia.
