The week of June 26, 2017, Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) cosponsored a resolution to designate June 26th as LGBT Equality Day! We are thankful for the Senator's continued support for LGBTQ equality!
Nadine Smith, co-founder and CEO of Equality Florida, has also watched her family evolve.
"When I came out to my family — they found a letter— I was in my teens and it was the last day I lived under their roof. My father and I didn't speak for years after I came out," said the 51-year-old. But he walked her down the aisle in 2009 and even appeared in a commercial advocating gay marriage in 2016.

#HonorThemWithAction Reaches 147 Million
Note from Equality Florida's Nadine Smith:
You weren't at Pulse. You live hundreds, even thousands of miles away. You donated to the victims fund and attended vigils. Your social media post uses the hashtag #HonorThemWithAction. You are sending thoughts and prayers and love to the families of those killed, to those wounded, and those who escaped whose injuries are not visible.
