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.

To hear Biden's beautiful video message, ch-ch-check it out (below).

Jazz Jennings' confidence is so inspiring!

On Wednesday night, TLC docu-series I Am Jazz premiered its second season with a major BANG. Not only did the transgender icon slam an ignorant anti-transgender teacher, but she also schooled an entire town hall on LGBT acceptance.

To give a little background on the drama, Jennings appeared at a public town hall to address the anti-LGBTQ Liberty Counsel, the same group that threatened to sue a school in Wisconsin for a planned reading of the teen's memoir I Am Jazz.

Sadly, the school in question ultimately caved to the hate group's pressure about eight months prior to last night's episode.

While J.J. might have lost the fight against the school, she definitely didn't lose her cool when a heckler at the town hall yelled:

This is definitely going to ruffle a few feathers!

Although Caitlyn Jenner has been a proud proponent of transgender rights, she is also a proud Republican — something that has made her polarizing figure in pop culture.

Recently, the I Am Cait star spoke with GQ UK about her political beliefs, where she acknowledges that her right-wing views seem contradictory to her LGBT advocacy.

While the athlete realizes Republicans haven't been the most vocal supporters of trans rights, she is willing to forgive this fact because of their focus on the economy.
