    The mother of the 22-year-old man charged with murdering five people in a mass shooting at a Colorado gay club was arrested the day of the killings, it has been revealed. Laura Voepel, the mom of 22-year-old Club Q shooting suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich, was arrested outside her home in Colorado Springs early Sunday morning. She was cited for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, a summons obtained by Denver NBC affiliate KUSA has revealed - hours after her child allegedly carried out the attack. According to the filing, officers had warned Voepel, 45, 'multiple times' during the encounter outside the domicile to 'stop yelling' - or face arrest. However, she did not comply, police wrote, and 'continued to make unreasonable noise directly next to multiple apartments.'  The incident transpired at about 3:30 am, and ultimately saw Voepel placed under arrest but not admitted to jail. Cops did not specify what Voepel had been yelling about.

    After five people were shot dead in a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colo., Matthew Grigsby thought about Club 501. It was the only gay bar in Redding, a Northern California city of 93,000 that, like Colorado Springs, is deeply religious and conservative. There, Grigsby felt comfortable holding hands or dancing with another man. Club 501 closed this summer, leaving Grigsby and other LGBTQ people without a place where they could be themselves. The news from Club Q in Colorado Springs was another gut punch. “There’s no safe place anywhere,” Grigsby, 53, said, his voice shaking. “It doesn’t matter where we are or what we do. People are going to come for us.” In politically red stretches of California — from the old logging towns in the north through the dusty farmlands of the Central Valley — the Colorado Springs massacre was yet another devastating reminder of how difficult and lonely it can be to be queer in conservative America.

    Alleged Colorado Springs LGBTQ shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich and his mother have been caught on camera threatening fellow Frontier Airlines passengers after spouting racial slurs.  The video, first reported by KDVR, was recorded by a woman named Maria Martinez after landing at Denver International Airport in July. Martinez's voice can be heard when the video begins as she follows Aldrich and mother, Laura Voepel. Aldrich, 22, is suspected of murdering five people and injuring others at Club Q on Saturday. It has emerged that Aldrich went through a name change and now identifies as non-binary, using they/them pronouns. Just before midnight, Aldrich is thought to have opened fire in the popular LGBTQ Colorado Springs nightclub. He was eventually subdued by US Army veteran Richard M. Fierro as well as patron Thomas Jane and a drag performer. The club's owners say Aldrich arrived with 'tremendous firepower' - an AR-15 rifle, six magazines of ammo and a handgun. Patrons used the handgun Aldrich was carrying to beat them to the ground until police arrived. In the latest video, Martinez says: 'What makes a...
    US Rep. Lauren Boebert said she is tired of being blamed for the deadly Colorado gay club shooting as the left points to her anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.  The Colorado congresswoman blasted her critics in an interview with OAN, saying she has been long-accused of influencing mass shooters since taking office.  'I have been accused of just about every mass shooting there has been since the Left has learned of my name,' Boebert said. 'Whether it's Uvalde, or the King Soopers shooting in Boulder, Colorado, or the Buffalo, New York shooting.  'Or even Paul Pelosi getting hammered,' she added, referencing the home invasion attack that left the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's husband hospitalized. 'I have been blamed for all of that.'  Nancy Pelosi had prominently laid the blame on MAGA Republicans for the deadly Colorado shooting when Anderson Aldrich, 22, killed five and injured 19 during a drag show on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance.  Following the House Speaker's condemnation, US Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Brianna Titone named Boebert directly for her comments against transgender individuals, and the local...
    Rep. Lauren Boebert’s critics on both the left and the right were disappointed when the far-right MAGA congresswoman narrowly defeated Democrat Adam Frisch in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. It was an incredibly close race; as of Friday morning, November 18, Boebert was ahead by only 551 votes in a very GOP-leaning district. During the campaign, Frisch and his supporters — including some Never Trump conservatives — vehemently called out Boebert as an extremist. The congresswoman has drawn plenty of criticism for her inflammatory anti-Islam and anti-gay comments, and in a scathing editorial published on November 22, the Denver Post’s editorial board argues that her anti-gay rhetoric has contributed to the type of hate that led to the attack on Club Q, a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs. On Saturday, November 19, a gunman killed five people and injured at least 18 others when he attacked Club Q. The day after the attack, Boebert tweeted, “The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers. This lawless violence needs to...
    MMA-fighter-turned porn actor Aaron Franklin Brink said he was relieved to hear his son is 'not gay' after finding out that the 22-year-old son had been accused of slaughtering five people and injuring 18 others in a mass shooting at a gay club. A defense attorney had called Brink, who lives in Southern California, to tell him that Anderson Lee Aldrich was under arrest for the massacre at Club Q. 'They started telling me about the incident, a shooting involving multiple people,' Brink told CBS 8. 'And then I go on to find out it's a gay bar. I said, 'God, is he gay?' I got scared, 'Shit, is he gay?' And he's not gay, so I said, 'Phhhewww'.' Aldrich's father went on to say that being gay did not align with their religious values.  'You know Mormons don't do gay. We don't do gay. There's no gays in the Mormon church. We don't do gay.' More to come.  Aaron Franklin Brink expressed relief when he realized his son is 'not gay' when he first heard the 22-year-old 'massacred five...
    A CNN anchor was stunned into silence after she learned that the Colorado Springs gay club shooting suspect is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.  On Tuesday, CNN broadcaster Alisyn Camerota delivered the news live on air that lawyers for Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, would be referring to their client as 'they' and 'Mx Aldrich' in upcoming court sessions and filings.  Camerota, joined by a panel of legal and political analysts, appeared shocked by the announcement while another commentator completely questioned the legitimacy of Aldrich's gender identity.  'I don't know what to say about that, I mean, that's what he's now saying,' Camerota said Tuesday evening.   Watch in real time as CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota sees her network's narrative on the Colorado Springs gay night club shooting come crashing down.

    Colorado gay club shooting suspect Anderson Aldrich's father has a sordid past, including mixed martial arts, drugs, reality TV and porn, which led the 22-year-old to change his name.  Aldrich, 22, is suspected of murdering five people and injuring others at Club Q on Saturday. The suspect's original name, however, is Nicholas Franklin Brink before he changed it to Anderson Lee Aldrich in 2016, a petition signed by his biological grandmother and step-grandfather, as well as his mother. Brink reportedly left Aldrich's mother when Anderson was a baby, before taking up MMA and porn, under the alias 'Dick Delaware.' He eventually appeared on camera on the reality shows Divorce Court and Intervention in 2009, when his fiancee tried to get him to stop using crystal meth, according to the New York Post.  This is a developing story.  
    COLORADO SPRINGS—Anderson Lee Aldrich kept an assault-type rifle and a burner phone in a one-bedroom apartment near the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs where he lived with his mother until a couple of months ago, according to Xavier Kraus, a former neighbor in the same apartment hallway. Kraus, 23, who said he once considered Aldrich a friend, also told The Daily Beast that the 22-year-old suspect in the mass shooting at the LGBTQ club Club Q that killed five people and injured 18 more on Saturday frequently used the word “f*ggot.” Aldrich has since been charged with five counts of murder and five hate crimes in connection with the latest episode of mass gun violence in America to target the LGBTQ community. “There would be times where he and his mom would get into fights, arguments, because he would be saying hateful things about whoever he was angry with,” Kraus told The Daily Beast. “He said things sometimes that probably should have been alarming to me. He used the term “f*ggot” a lot. Most of the time it came...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Every year on Thanksgiving and Christmas, members of the LGBTQ community here would come to eat, drink and laugh at Club Q. The gay bar became a sanctuary, an oasis of affirmation and acceptance, for those who might be estranged from their own family with nowhere to go for the holidays. Club Q’s staff and customers became that family. “It’s not just a party place,” said Darryl Alexander, who regularly comes to the club with his husband, Dan. “It’s a community building.” This community was shattered late Saturday night when a gunman indiscriminately opened fire into the festive crowd. Five people were killed — including bar staff and clientele — and at least 25 others were injured. Police took a 22-year-old man into custody, aided by two people who helped spare countless other lives by rushing the shooter. Police have said the gunman’s motive, at this point, is not clear. But the LGBTQ community has been adamant that the unthinkable violence was marked by animus, the result of increasingly hateful anti-gay rhetoric on social media and in...
