Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato and Kid Cudi are among the long list of artists and celebrities who have taken part in the Ryan Murphy-produced tribute to the victims of the terror attack at Orlando’s Pulse night club. Murphy, a TV vet responsible for producing American Horror Story, Screem Queens and Glee, pulled an impressive cast for the somber, yet powerful tribute to the 49 killed at the club June 12.
The 18-minute video carries the following description:
For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder. On June 12, forty-nine innocent people—most of them Latin—were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were. It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence. Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.
