In the wake of the mass murder at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, #RestinPRIDE is a video campaign honoring the 49 victims.

The video features Rumer Willis, Candis Cayne, Greg Louganis, Wilson Cruz, and many others who recall their most prideful moments—like coming out to their parents as transgender, attending a Pride rally, or dancing at a gay nightclub for the first time.

The video also features the song “Light” by America’s Got Talent contestant Brian Justin Crum. All proceeds from the online sale of the song will go to the OneOrlando Fund.

The #RestinPride website states that the goal of the video is to encourage people to donate to the OneOrlando fund and to continue the conversation around LGBT rights. And it hopes to partner with a sponsor to sell rainbow makeup similar to what is featured in the video.
