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 #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.
The video launched Thursday and is a moving tribute to the victims. It’ll probably melt your cold, dark heart until you are crying out your eyeballs at your desk.
The campaign encourages people to put on rainbow paint and upload videos of themselves sharing their most prideful moments to the Rest in Pride Facebook page using the hashtag #RestinPRIDE. The website states: “Though new memories won’t be made by the Orlando victims, our community and its allies share our most prideful memories in their honor to inspire LGBT people around the world to live their lives proudly and authentically. ”
Friends. We had the honor of being apart of the video campaign #restinpride To honor our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community we lost at Pulse in Orlando. Please like their FB page https://www.facebook.com/RestInPRIDE/ check out the video and see how you can help. Video link in bio. Now is the time we won’t allow fear to overpower love, and from being our true authentic self.
