Stop the Hate: 49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy in Ryan Murphy-Produced Tribute

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 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. 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.

    Let’s commemorate these victims of hatred instead of claiming ignorant
    things please.
    YES, this video was made for the 50 innocent lives that were taken in the
    Orlando massacre. NO, this doesn’t involve the victims of Turkey. This
    video was clearly made before the Istanbul attacks anyway. BUT, this is not
    just about terrorism. This is about LOVE, this is about gun laws that
    clearly need to be changed in the United States. This is a whole movement
    regarding the evolution of American politics (as I hope). I know it’s hard
    to see how the media privileges countries over others. But please just STOP
    comparing the two events because this is not what this is about. How about
    we pray for WORLD peace and stop focusing on what is more important.

    YouTube comments are the sewer drains of the Internet.
    Shut ins, people rejected by society, and conspiracy theorists all with
    fake profiles who have nothing better to do from Moms basement.
    Get a life.
    This is a video honoring the victims.
    Don’t like it, then get over it

    so CHAOS!!!

    It’s nice how whenever a Muslim does something bad we are all expected to
    be open and accepting of them. It would be nice if Muslims were held to the
    same standard for gays.

    White gay men like Ryan Murphy, Bryan Singer, Roland Emmerich, Colton
    Haynes, Dan Savage, etc never previously have shown themselves to care
    about people of color, queer or otherwise, either personally or
    professionally but now suddenly they care cause it’s national news but not
    when all those other previous times when brown people were mistreated or
    Black and Latina trans women were murdered. Kinda like what Jesse Williams
    just said about have no record of speaking up, until…

    Like the kid from Real O’Neals said Colton Haynes is now openly gay and now
    also apparently cares about brown people but not when he once, no twice
    mocked people of color’s skin for his Halloween costume. He can be in this
    national video to up his profile, but made his non apology about the race
    face on some obscure show nobody would see…

    P.S. get the secret message?

    what about radical islam?

  15. Twink with a Daddy Kink says:

    We really need some gun laws, look at Canada or other countries with tight
    gun laws. People saying that they should carry a gun to protect themselves,
    the problem is that they shouldn’t. Carrying a gun isn’t normal, they were
    in a club. Having fun, dancing with friends and romantic interests. Not
    carrying guns, only dancing in joy. All of these people died, leaving
    families behind.

    Why do these good looking idiots think that just because they are famous
    they are smarter than us? Shut the fuck up. Your famous cause of your music
    and acting not your stupid brainwashed political philosophy.
