Equality Florida has set a deadline to distribute donations for the victims of the Pulse shooting. Victims and their families have until September 12th to submit a claim to receive the funds.

In his acceptance speech at the Republican convention, Donald Trump said he’d protect the LGBTQ community. But one Florida advocate is skeptical.

The LGBT advocacy group Equality Florida set a $100,000 fundraising goal for victims immediately after the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando. Now, the total is nearing $6 million.
