One year ago, a shooter opened fire in a popular gay club in Orlando, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others, making it the deadliest mass shooting in US history. In this week’s episode, I’m talking with Adam Miller, a therapist volunteering at an LGBTQ center in Orlando at the time. Adam and I talk about the immediate aftermath of the shooting and the response of local therapists and The Center, the long term effects of the shooting on the LGBTQ community and community at large, and what’s happening now to honor and remember those affected by the shooting. There's a moment of silence for reflection and respect before the interview begins. Adam is currently between websites, to learn more, visit his Psychology Today profile.
