Logan Lynn releases single for Orlando victims





Logan Lynn releases single for Orlando victims

 The recent tragedy that happened at Orlando's Pulse nightclub have obviously stunned the nation but more specifically, the LGBTQI community as the center of the attack. While many of us remain mournful and full of sorrow, some took to their respective creative outlets to express their feelings. Local Logan Lynn falls into that latter category.

He released his track for "Go There When You Want To Be Loved" just two days after the June 12th massacre, with a heartfelt statement on the track's Bandcamp page.

"I feel sick and afraid. I want to cancel all of my upcoming public appearances and find a closet to go back inside of. But I cannot. And I will not. I will not be made quiet by fear. I will not let American apathy dictate my path. And I will never stop hoping that change will come," Logan wrote.

"I wrote this song “Go There When You Want To Be Loved” about my own feeling that there is no safe place for me in the world at times as a gay man, as a person living with persistent mental health struggles, and as a public person known for both. These lyrics feel like the only words I can find for how I am feeling, so I am releasing it now as a fundraiser for my queer family in Orlando."

Logan's sentiments aren't outcast, as many relate and are looking for this opportunity as a much needed chance to band together and support one another. With vigils happening across the world and very inclusive, grandiose ones happening on Portland's front, that support is extensive.

All proceeds from Logans track are going towards the recovery of the LGBTQI community in Orlando. We're coming out of Pride Week, but don't let that stop the feeling. Listen to it, share it, do what you can. The community needs it.
