no title

Such a fitting tribute…

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.

Doctors have done such an incredible job in an unbelievably difficult time.

Of the 44 victims rushed to the level one trauma center, as of Friday morning, there are 11 still in the hospital, all experiencing an array of conditions, according to Trauma Medical Director Dr. Joseph Ibrahim.

Eight of those 11 patients are currently in stable condition, with one more listed as "guarded," which means he's able to move on his own and speak.

The other two at Orlando Regional are still listed

Orlando Shooting Victim's Father Refused To Claim Dead Son's Body After Finding Out He Was Gay

no title

This man did not deserve to have a child in the first place.

In what's easily the most gruesome attack on American soil in modern history, 49 people were victims of a hate crime at an LGBT Latino nightclub in Orlando, Florida two weekends ago .

Unfortunately, the ugliness did not stop with their deaths… because we're hearing that one man who lost his son refused to claim the body after finding out his son was actually gay.

According to a new report, the dad did not want to betray his Christian roots and chose to entirely disrespect his "loved one" instead.

Thankfully, other family members of the unidentified man did eventually step forward to claim the body, but we just cannot imagine letting anything — even religion — take priority over your murdered child.

This disgusting behavior is nothing new for the LGBT community, but that doesn't make the circumstances any less difficult to grasp.

Rest in peace, brother.

Sure, many corrupt politicians are still keeping us unprotected thanks to their asinine stance on gun control, but the President decided to one-up offer something while we wait — the country's first-ever National Monument dedicated to the LGBT community:

The Stonewall National Monument!!!

As many of our readers are already know, the 1969 police raids on Stonewall Inn marked the beginning of the fight for equal rights for our people… and we're so happy to see that now honored on a national scale.

President Barack Obama made the announcement in a heartfelt Instagram post on Friday, saying:
