49 Celebrities Honor The Victims Of Orlando Shooting In Beautiful Video Memorial

Directed by Ryan Murphy, "Stop the Hate" airs on Logo July 30.

An moving video directed by Ryan Murphy sees 49 celebrities paying tribute to the victims of the June 12 shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Produced by HRC, the 18-minute clip, “Stop the Hate,” features Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Jane Fonda, Caitlyn Jenner, and others reading one of the victim’s names and sharing information about them.

 

 

“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,” reads a description.

“On June 12, 49 innocent people—most of them Latinx—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.”

“Stop the Hate” will air on Logo Saturday, July 30 at midnight, with a call to viewers to join HRC in urging Congress to pass common sense gun restrictions and nondiscrimination laws.

The video will re-air July 31 and 6:41pm and 11pm.
