Comudidad's Appeal Letter

These are fraught times for the LGBTQ+ community. Nex Benedict, a transgendered youth, was found dead after being bullied. The University of Florida cancelled all DEI programs. The political rhetoric is explosively virulent and cruel. Comunidad offers a port in this violent storm. We are asking for your support. Your support allows us to spread our message of love at events like our annual Pride Mass, LB Pride and our monthly meetings. Please read our Appeals Letter and donate. Any support you can give is greatly appreciated. God Bless.
