In the past weeks, the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando has weighed heavily on all of our thoughts. With 49 victims, the hashtag #SayTheirNames has served as a way to memorialize those who lost their lives. Their photos and some anecdotes of their lives have circulated around the internet, making sure none are forgotten.
Ryan Murphy has directed a tribute video for HRC that preserves each victim’s memory and tells their stories.

They also use the platform to call for an end to hate crimes and gun violence.
