Loretta Lynch to LGBT Community: “Your Country Stands with You in the Light”

HeadlineJun 22, 2016

Attorney General Loretta Lynch says investigators may never identify a single motive in the Orlando massacre, which she called both an act of terror and hate. After meeting with relatives of the victims in Orlando, Lynch expressed solidarity with the LGBT community.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch: “And let me say to our LGBT friends and family, particularly to anyone who might view this tragedy as an indication that their identities, that their essential selves, might somehow be better left unexpressed or in the shadows: This Department of Justice—and your country—stands with you in the light.”
