@GovRonDeSantis has stripped any mention of the #LGBTQ community in remembering #Pulse. This is completely straight-washed and an insult to #HD47.— Rep. Anna V. Eskamani 🔨 (@AnnaForFlorida) June 12, 2019

Today we mourn the loss of life of 49 innocent victims of an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando that targeted the LGBTQ and Hispanic community, and Florida as a whole. In honor of their memory, I am ordering flags to be lowered to half-staff.— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) June 12, 2019
