1, 2, 3 Green Light!

Did you ever play Red Light, Green Light game when you were little?

Well now those that want us back in the closet have gotten a green light for their virulence against us.

The Pride Community Center of North Central Florida was found vandalized early Saturday morning with the culprit leaving behind a hateful message.

The Pride Center is known for its activism for LGBTQ rights and for supporting members of its community throughout the region.

The attack came just weeks before the highly anticipated return of the Gainesville Pride Festival on Oct. 22, which was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

The vandalism is being investigated as a bias crime by the police and the community has rallied together.

Those who showed up at the center helped clean the mess left behind, sweeping up glass and rocks.


“Later I will be angry about this vicious emotion crime but right now I’m incredibly sad for every vulnerable person in my community,” Alford said, adding that she faults some elected Republicans who have shared anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. “This does not represent the values of our community and we can’t be defined or stopped by the hate-filled actions of ignorant people.”

All the anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ is stirring up anger and violence against us, take a look at some of the comments on Yahoo News over this article,

we the people are tired of it all. it is going to get alot worse for this group. just wait till they are hunted at night and found in the morning for fun

To bad it was not burned down. Nothing but a septic tank!

Their vitriol knows no bounds, with “The Don’t Say” law, the law banning the diversity training in the workplace, with the banning of books, with their criminalizing of our healthcare it is giving the green light for violent acts against us and is polarizing the nation.

With their Pride celebration coming up at the end of October I wonder if there will be anti-LGBTQ rallies or worst yet violence at the festival?
