Earlier this month, we marked the third anniversary of the devastating massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where 49 people, mostly LGBTQ, were murdered and 53 others were injured while celebrating Pride. Most Americans honored those impacted at Pulse with vigils, remembrance, and a recommitment to working for equality, but one group of self-described religious leaders marked the solemn occasion with a “Make America Straight Again” conference in Florida. Wayne Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out, will join Welton on State of Belief this week to discuss what happened at this hateful conference and how we can support the rights of LGBTQ+ people in the face of such vitriol.
