Panti Bliss on #Orlando and more…



Panti Bliss Gives Brilliant Speech About Homophobia and Orlando: WATCH 
If you haven’t caught this, you’re missing something.
Irish LGBT rights activist and pub landlord Panti Bliss appeared at ILGA-Europe’s Equality Gala in Brussels, Belgium last week to talk about homophobia and the horror at Orlando.
Panti had this to say about the Orlando massacre:
“I’ve never been to Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, but that doesn’t matter because I know it like the back of my hand. I know the kind of people that were there. I know the fun that they were having. I know the freedom that they felt to be able to be themselves, totally. I know the boys that they were kissing and I know the music they were dancing to. Because I have kissed those very same boys and I have danced to that very same music. I have never been to Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and yet I’ve spent some of the best times of my life there.”
She talks for ‘everyone’:
