homophobia, mass murder 

Mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs.

My partner moved to Colorado this year. As a foreigner, I had always conceptualized the state as rather progressive, so I didn't believe him when he told me it's homophobic.

I don't like the Appeal to Lived Experience because people are so often unreliable narrators of their own realities but incidents like this certainly make me question my position. At least, Lived Experience is a cue to investigate a matter further.
