"Topher Hoffmann moved to Washington about two weeks prior to the Pulse nightclub shooting in June 2016. He saw a Facebook event page for an anti-gun gay group forming and showed up.

“I didn’t have a queer support network yet and needed to channel my grief in a healthy way,” says the 27-year-old Buffalo, N.Y., native.

Gays Against Guns (GAG) is a national organization that “names, shames and blames the gun lobby, violence profiteers and their GOP benefactors on Capitol Hill. The GAG-D.C. chapter, a volunteer group that has a 15-member core and 100 on its e-mail list, “leverages its proximity to the national political scene by taking political theater, direct action tactics to the grounds of the Capitol.”

"The AIDS Memorial is a profound work of activism in its own right. The AIDS crisis was allowed to happen because people and their government didn’t care that we were dying. Remembering those deaths
is a beautiful corrective. It screams “they mattered.”
.
I’m one of the lucky few who made it through the plague years. The survivors witnessed another painful period of society turning away – people moving on – people forgetting, and younger generations clueless about our history and pain.
.
Projects like @theaidsmemorial brought that period to an end. Watching today’s millennials read and respond to the stories of our lost comrades has helped repair this old warrior’s heart. Thank you
for remembering us.” — by Peter Staley
