"Thirty-three people were killed. Some were queer, and others were straight allies. The GLBT community at Tech grieves in the same way as others — deeply and as part of a greater whole.... Yes, there were gay people that were killed. One was a very close friend of mine. But I don't feel comfortable talking about it because I haven't talked to the families and I want to be respectful to the families, first and foremost. I don't want this to be a gay thing, because it's not a gay thing. It's an everybody thing."
-- Virginia Tech GLBT Student Alliance president Curtis Dahn, confirming gay students among the casualties in the massacre earlier this week.
