Community Response to Tragedy

By : Alex Storer

After horror struck Orlando on the morning of June 12, 2016 it took monumental effort for a grief-stricken community -for people- to come together and address the needs of everyone affected, specially of those directly impacted. Long-established leaders as well as emerging ones found themselves at the forefront of a massive task: to build up this once colorful and joyful community. A haven for LGBTQ+ people had been stolen and the LGBTQ+ Latinx community suffered a devastating loss. Layers upon layers of challenges, from language barriers to immigration status, came to surface. To take care of all those involved was not and it still isn’t an easy mission. However, in the strength and resiliency that characterizes a community with a long record of fighting oppression and hatred, a united front was there to pick up the pieces and guide the process to becoming whole again. Join us for a special Diálogo session with Representative Carlos Guillermo SmithTerry DeCarloRoxy Santiago and Christopher J. Cuevas as they share the paths they’ve taken to respond to tragedy, to honor those lost and to continue fighting for the community

The Florida Holocaust Museum and the Tampa Bay Rays invite the community to come to Tropicana Field in support of the Museum on Thursday, July 6 at 7:10 p.m. when the Rays take on the Boston Red Sox! For just $25 ($36 value), your ticket includes a discounted seat in the lower level and $5 from each ticket donated back to The Florida Holocaust Museum.

The Florida Holocaust Museum will be recognized preceding the game with a check presentation on the field, video showcase, and community corner. In addition, Holocaust Survivors John and Toni Rinde will throw out the first pitch!

John Rinde was four years old when the war began and initially lived under Stalin domination in Lvov. In 1941 when the war between Russia and Germany started, he was herded into the Lvov ghetto. He escaped from the ghetto and moved to Lublin, surviving the war by using an assumed name and masquerading as a Catholic. Toni Rinde was born to Jewish parents and hidden by a Polish family when she was 16 months old. The family named her Marisha, provided her with false papers, and raised her as a Catholic from 1941-1944. When World War II ended, she was reunited with her parents.

The Florida Holocaust Museum’s “Rays Up Night” will take place on Thursday, July 6th at 7:10 p.m. at Tropicana Field. For additional information or to place your ticket order, please call 727.820.0100 ext. 301. Tickets are limited!

2nd Circuit (again) finds anti-gay discrimination legal under Title VII

In a case filed by a now deceased gay skydiver who alleged sexual-orientation discrimination in the workforce, the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals April 18 declined to accept the legal argument that anti-gay discrimination is prohibited under current federal civil rights law.

In a 13-page decision, the three-judge panel cites a 2000 decision in the Simonton case, a 2nd Circuit ruling that determined Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of the 1964, which bars sex discrimination in the workforce, doesn’t apply to sexual orientation. As a result of that precedent, the panel concludes Title VII cannot be applied in the pending case, named Zarda v. Altitude Express.

Sen. Baldwin prepares for re-election fight in 2018

As Democrats gear up for the congressional mid-term elections in 2018, one race that will be critical for the LGBTQ community and potentially a challenge to win is the re-election bid of U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), the only out lesbian in Congress.

After becoming the first openly gay person elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012, Baldwin will face re-election in a state Trump won in a surprise last year. Her race will almost certainly be a priority for the LGBTQ community seeking to ensure visibility in Congress and to strike back at Trump after his victory there.

New group defends integrated Israel military

A new group seeks to counter growing opposition to LGBTQ and female soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces.

Blue and White Pride describes itself as “a movement of Israelis, men and women, who serve in Israel’s security forces, both as conscripts and in the reserves, and want to maintain the IDF as a meeting point for Israeli society.” The group also seeks to strengthen “the values of the IDF and those serving” against the backdrop of “anti-liberal forces trying to stop” the integration of women, LGBTQ Israelis and other minorities into the military.
