WKMG in Orlando reports:

The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Community Center of Central Florida — more commonly known as The Center — and a second nearby gay-owned business were targeted by vandals who spray painted with a swastika and the words “Gay Pawer,” “Die Fags,” “Go To Hell” and other homophobic slurs. Damage to the two buildings is estimated to be over $1,000.

…Fund raising efforts to install security cameras have been ramped up in the wake of the incident.

Thank you. I used to live in Orlando until about 5 years ago, and I spent quite a bit of time at the Center in my early 20s. Check (and calls) are on the way. There hasn’t been a problem like this in *years*.
