    Angela Giampolo, known as the “Philly gay lawyer,” spoke with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller about the how the region’s LGBTQ community is doing following the mass murder of 49 at a gay club in Orlando, Florida.

    “Everyone is still in shock, in disbelief,” she said. “Throughout the day, I haven’t done much … People that I know are just still reeling from it.”

    Giampolo talked about Philadelphia’s connections with Orlando and all the grief that is shaking friends and the larger community.
