On Orlando

The OHTN sends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of those who died or were injured in the Orlando shooting on Sunday. We stand, as we have always done, in solidarity with the the LGBTQ community — not just in PRIDE month, which we also celebrate, but all year long.

We acknowledge the courageous and critical role that the highly diverse LGBTQ community has played in making HIV an international priority and in advancing social and political progress in addressing all forms of discrimination and intolerance.

The OHTN is committed to ensuring our work supports the LGBTQ community and helps our society move beyond this tragedy to a place where everyone can feel safe, supported and proud of who they are and of who they love.
