"Disaster of all types disproportionately impact people in underserved and marginalized communities. Terrorist incidents such as the Pulse Night Club Shooting in June 2016 highlight the importance that emergency managers and all disaster responders increase their efforts to provide culturally competent disaster assistance to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Intersex, and Two-Spirit (LGBTQI2-S) community; particularly if the LGBTQI2-S community is targeted or impacted by a particular disaster."
