Honrando la memoria de las victimas de Orlando

Honoring victims of Orlando

by Entre Hermanos - Special to the SGN

Entre Hermanos invita a la comunidad en general a en conjunto crear un altar de muertos para honrar la memoria de todos/as aquellos/as que fallecieron durante la masacre ocurrida en la madrugada del domingo 12 de junio mientras se celebraba la Noche Latina LGBTTI del club Pulse en Orlando. Los altares honran a nuestros muertos y son parte de nuestra cultura Latina. Ellos forman parte crucial de nuestro proceso de luto. Este altar proveerá una forma de mostrar nuestros respetos y expresar nuestro dolor colectivo ante la trágica pérdida de numerosas vidas de otros/as Latinos/as LGBTTI en Orlando. Ofrecemos nuestro espacio durante horas de oficina comenzando mañana martes 14 de junio para que cualquier persona que así lo desee pase y pueda dejar una flor, una vela, una nota, un poema, o simplemente necesita un espacio donde sentarse y elevar una oración. Nuestras oficinas abren de 10 de la mañana a 6 pm y están localizadas en el 1105 de la Avenida 23 en Seattle. Invitamos al público en general a que pasen el viernes 17 de Junio a las 6 pm para en comunidad tener un momento para expresar nuestro luto. Habrá espacios para que cada quien exprese su dolor como mejor lo considere. Como comunidad Entre Hermanos ofrecerá una plegaria no religiosa, al igual que tendremos canciones en vivo. En adición, tendremos una lista de sugerencias de para aquellas personas que deseen canalizar su luto a través de la acción (i.e. como envolverse políticamente, donde donar sangre, cómo donar dinero, etc.).

Entre Hermanos agradece infinitamente las muestras de apoyo y cariño que ha recibido a consecuencia de lo sucedido en Orlando. Dichas muestras nos hacen saber que sí valemos, que sí hay mucha gente que ha logrado trascender y genuinamente son nuestros/as aliados/as, que no estamos solos/as.

Exhortamos al público a no recurrir al odio y la discriminación hacia nuestros/as hermanos/as musulmanes. Suplicamos que las energías se inviertan en combatir la homofobia y la Islamofobia. Nuestra solidaridad con nuestros/as hermanos/as LGBTTI musulmanes.

La misión de Entre Hermanos es promover la salud y el bienestar de Latinos/as gay, lesbianas, bisexuales, transexuales, transgéneros y aquellos/as que aún no se han definido, en un marco culturalmente adecuado a través de la prevención de enfermedades, educación, apoyo, abogacía y desarrollo de la comunidad. Entre Hermanos surgió por iniciativa de un grupo de Latinos/as que vieron la necesidad de servicios sociales, educacionales y de salud en la comunidad en la primavera del 1991. Posteriormente, recibieron su estatus federal como organización sin fines de lucro en el 2001. Entre Hermanos lleva a cabo la Noche Latina LGBTQ más antigua de Seattle en el Club Neighbours cada domingo a partir de las 10 pm. Para más información de Entre Hermanos, visite www.entrehermanos.org o llame al 206-322-7700.



Entre Hermanos invites the general public to help build an altar to honor the memory of those we lost during the Latino LGBTQ Night at Pulse Club massacre this last Sunday June 12th in Orlando. Altars honoring the dead are part of our Latino culture and they play an important role in our grieving process. This altar provides us with a way to pay our respects and express our collective grief at the tragic loss of many Latino LGBTQ lives in Orlando. Entre Hermanos will offer their office space during business hours starting Tuesday June 14th to anyone that would like to drop by and leave a flower, a candle, a note, a poem or simply need a place to sit and elevate a prayer. Our offices are open from 10 am to 6 pm and they are located at 1105 23rd Ave in Seattle, WA. We invite the public to come by on Friday, June 17th at 6 pm, when, in community, we will have a moment to express our grief. There will be space for everyone to express their grief how they feel it is best. As a whole, Entre Hermanos, will offer a non-denominational prayer as well as songs. Additionally, there will be a list of action items for those interested in turning their grief into real action (i.e. how to get politically involved, where to donate blood, how to make a donation, etc.).

Entre Hermanos is eternally grateful for the numerous gestures of love and support received as a result of the tragic event in Orlando. These gestures have let us know our worth, that there are many people that have evolved and are genuine allies, and that we are not alone.

Entre Hermanos would like to take a moment to encourage everyone to avoid falling in the trap of hate and discrimination against our Muslim brothers and sisters. Instead, we advocate for a stronger commitment to fight homophobia and Islamophobia. Our solidarity to our Muslim LGBTQ brothers and sisters.

Entre Hermanos' mission is to promote the health and well-being of the Latino Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and questioning community in a culturally appropriate environment through disease prevention, education, support services, advocacy and community building. Entre Hermanos came into being by the initiative of a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Latinos/as that saw the need for social, educational, and health support services in their community in the spring of 1991 and received their federal non-profit status in 2001. Entre Hermanos hosts Seattle's longest running Latino LGBTQ Night at Neighbors Club in Seattle every Sunday night starting at 10 pm.
