43-year-old Zaniar Matapour is charged with terrorism after the mass shooting.

Celebrated Pride: – Scary

– When I heard about it, we did not know if the act originated in hatred or if it was terror, but it sounded like the perpetrator was psychotic. This means that we must follow better, spend more resources and focus more on mental health, and find ways to help people so that this does not happen to them or that it gets to the point that it happens to them, says Verrett in another See and hear.

– No other choice

Verrett appears clear and determined as he conveys his message to the followers. In the video, he mentions the Oslo shooting as a hate crime, but goes on to say:

– I’m with you

He goes on to say that we as a society have a way to go.

– The only way we can go is up. We must be strong and proud of who we are. I stand with you, because I am one of you. I am a bisexual man who loves you, and I want you to know that I am so sorry for the actions and crimes that have happened to your near and dear ones, says Verrett.

That’s why they came “alone”

During the Instagram video, he writes, among other things:

“Light a candle for everyone in the LGBTQ + community who was killed and injured during the shooting in Norway. We must continue to stand for expression and acceptance on our planet. We must learn to make room for all of God’s creations whether we understand it or not.

‘I feel so much right now. I feel anger, frustration and apathy in addition to a great fighting spirit. I usually say we should love everyone, no matter what. But how can we love someone who hurts us so much? Which ruins the 50th anniversary of gay rights to love? Which destroys for life unfoldment and inclusion? I know I do not have so many answers on how we love. And maybe it’s ok “, she begins the post.
