He said:

"Hi everyone. This is Joe Biden and I wish I could be there with you in person to honor some truly inspiring trailblazers. Each of you gives meaning to Harvey Milk's words, 'Hope never remains silent.' And we need you. We need all of you. Because as we celebrate a year of equality in marriage, draconian state laws deny transgender Americans basic civil rights. And in nearly 70 countries, it's a crime. It's a crime to be who you are. And because the freedom to live freely means being free from bullying, free from harassment, and free from violence. You know, our hearts are still heavy for Orlando, but you're showing tonight that we are Orlando. We're all Americans. Unbowed. Unrelenting. We endure. We overcome. We're hopeful and we will not be silent."'

The event will also spotlight LGBT pioneers Billie Jean King, Harvey Fierstein, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera. Stage presenters include Emma Stone, Macklemore, Lance Bass, Chloe Grace Moretz, Janet Mock, Wilson Cruz and Candis Cayne.

It airs at 8pm ET/PT.
