Forty-nine celebrities including Lady Gaga, Kerry Washington, Jane Fonda and Emma Roberts have participated in an 18 minute film, celebrating the lives of the 49 people who were murdered in the Orlando shootings, which took place at a gay club on June 12.

Hollywood pays tribute to Orlando victims in this moving video

Each celebrity tells us about the life of one of the victims who they were, where they worked and lived, their passions and hopes for the future. Produced by the Human Rights Campaign and Ryan Murphy,  co-creator of Glee, the aim is to keep the memory of the victims alive, and shine a light on their lives, at a time when much media coverage is focussing on the shooter.

The film ends with a poignant slide, which says:

Since the massacre, Congress has voted down commonsense gun safety laws… four times.

Meanwhile, more than 200 bills targeting the LGBTQ community have been introduced in the States this year. It will take all of us to change that.
