    Brandon Wolf: Pulse shooting survivor, LGBTQ+ rights advocate, and Author of 'A Place for Us' on right wing lawa, human rights, and gun violence

    On this episode Nadia Addesi and Micheline Maalouf speak to Brandon Wolf a nationally-recognized gun safety and LGBTQ civil rights advocate and dynamic public speaker. He currently serves as the Press Secretary for Equality Florida, the state’s LGBTQ civil rights organization.

    On June 12, life changed for Brandon. He crouched in a bathroom while a gunman opened fire at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub, killing his best friends, Drew Leinonen & Juan Guerrero, and 47 others. Rather than be swallowed by the anger and fear of tragedy, Brandon set out to honor the victims’ legacies with action. 

    Brandon chats with us about:

    His story on that tragic night of the Pulse shooting and what kept him going

    How he has turned his heartbreak into advocacy

    The importance of community care for our mental health

    He clarifies and breaks down Florida's infamous "Don't Say Gay" bill

    He breaks down other laws that impact book bans, gender-affirming care, gun safety, and gender-affirming care and how they can impact everyone, not just the LGBTQ+ community and not just Floridians.
