Five months after the Pulse nightclub shooting, Chris Cuevas, academic advisor, continues to feel loss — not only for those who perished, but also for his community, who lost a place where they truly felt safe.
During a recent interview with the Three Wise Guys on 90.7 WMFE’s radio talk show “Friends Talking Faith,” Chris Cuevas, academic advisor, expressed his grief in the wake of the Pulse tragedy. He also expressed what he and others like him are doing to move forward and once again find a sense of safety in a world that continues to target LGBTQ individuals and people of color.
He discussed the creation of QLatinx, designed to reestablish a safe place for LGBTQ people of Latin descent, and the work Valencia continues to do to help our students find solace in these trying times.
