I am so honored and excited to be a part of this anthology. And I am also very humbled at the thought that we could raise money for the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy. Thank you all for purchasing your copy and helping us to help alleviate some of the struggles that the families of the Pulse nightclub massacre are dealing with.

All my love and sincerest devotion

I love the idea behind this; it brings together voices from across the LGBT community, some who aren't writers, some who are, some who are just teens wanting to express their voices, and who support the victims and families of the Orlando shooting in any small way they can.

All money raised goes to the victims and families of the Orlando shooting.

Love is Love is a poetry anthology that was written by dozens of fine poets. This collection was brought together to help raise funds for the families who were affected from the Orlando Pulse Shooting.
Each poet poured their heart and soul into their writing, demonstrating how love is love, regardless of sexual orientation. Each poem is spoken with a different voice, a different style, but carry the same meaning. The meaning that is told in the title - Love is Love.

Days after the Orlando shooting at Pulse nightclub, a friend requested submissions from LGBTQ authors and allies for a poetry anthology. Sixty+ authors from around the globe answered, resulting in this beautiful anthology to benefit the victims and survivors of the tragedy.

Each poem is poignant. Some speak directly to the tragedy at Pulse nightclub. Many tell stories of falling in love. Others deal with feelings of persecution, victimization, and triumph. Within these pages are vivid pictures a

I was excited to finally see this book out. I know so many of the authors of the poems and couldn't wait to read what they'd written.

Some of the poems made me laugh, some made me cry, some just made me shout.

I would highly recommend this great book and of course it's even better that by buying it you're supporting an equally good cause.

Thank you to all the authors, and behind the scenes people, who donated their time and talents to bring us this great product.

I am so honoured to be a part of this project, one that brought a host of people together to contribute to a cause borne out of the tragedy of the Pulse shootings.

Each poem, unique and brilliant in its own way, delivers a poignant message. Love is love. To all who contributed, and to all who purchase a copy, a heartfelt thanks. <3

A poignant collection of texts paying tribute to the lives lost in the Pulse massacre.

A sort of multi-voice analysis on love in all its shades. Every page, every word feels so intense it's almost a blessing that it's so short. The world needs more beauty and less pain.
Thank you Lily for putting this together.
