A dedication to the Orlando victims, the video included presentations by Lady Gaga and many more
An 18-minute video released by the Human Rights Campaign yesterday, pays tribute to the victims of the June 12 hate crime and massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida during a Latinx show.
The video, directed by Ryan Murphy, features performances by 49 celebrities who speak in detail about the 49 fallen members of the LGBT and Allied community.
“The victims live on in our memories,” read the white lettered, black background words used at the beginning of the video. “These are their names … These are their stories.”
The HRC and Murphy are asking viewers of the “Stop the Hate” video to visit the HRC page to sign up and “support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community.” By supporting Orlando, demanding action and joining the campaign, the HRC believes that change will come about through this effort.
In order of appearance, the celebrities who participated in the video are: Lady Gaga, Chris Pine, Cuba Gooding Jr., Connie Britton, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Lea Michele, Colton Haynes, Sophia Bush, Jane Fonda, Harry Shum Jr., Denis O’Hare, Rob Reiner, Melissa Benoist, Caitlyn Jenner, Édgar Ramírez, Max Greenfield, Chaz Bono, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts, Kerry Washington, George Lopez, Evan Rachel Wood, Sofia Vergara, Diego Boneta, Nina Jacobson, Demi Lovato, Tyler Oakley, Yeardley Smith, Kid Cudi, Kaitlin Olson, Kevin McHale, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lee Daniels, Chace Crawford, Evan Peters, Gerard Butler, Katey Sagal, John Stamos, Laverne Cox, Jordana Brewster, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Darren Criss, Kathy Bates, Anna Paquin, Guillermo Díaz and Joe Mantello.
