Marginalized Memories—Remembering our LGBTQIA+ Siblings in Orlando and the Systemic Injustices that Link Us All

Posted by PNL Editors on

Monday marked CNY Pride Week Day 1 and I had a moment of reprieve in my schedule—or perhaps the overwhelming emotions I am experiencing forced me to take respite—to join the vigil in downtown Syracuse to honor the Orlando Shooting victims, the vast majority of whom were black, Latinx, other people of color, and some possibly transgender. I have not had much time to process these events, as my heart is going to my friends in Orlando and to all of my community.

Pending Supreme Court decisions concerning the constitutionality of California Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act have pushed discussion of same-sex marriage into the mainstream, with many civil rights advocates convinced that regardless of the court’s decision, eventual victory is a done deal.

Transocean Fined

Transocean, the owner of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, agreed in January to pay $400 million for criminal penalties, plus $1 billion in civilian penalties. An explosion on the rig in 2010 released 185 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and killed 11 workers. Further, the company has decided to plead guilty to accusations that it violated several of the Clean Water Act’s mandates before its next hearing in February.
