no title

This is the best news to come out after the Orlando shooting so far!

The LGBT community was rocked to its core early Sunday morning when 49 of our brothers and sisters were senselessly murdered while partying at Pulse Nightclub.

Authorities and politicians are currently fighting amongst themselves whether to call this a foreign or domestic terrorist attack, or whether to blame the deaths on gun control… but we know this was first and foremost a hate crime.

Luckily, the Broadway community could not be tighter with us gays, which is why we're happy to report that Broadway For Orlando is here to help!

Celebs like Kristen Bell, Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Idina Menzel, and sooooo many more will be raising money for the LGBT Center of Central Florida with a musical theater cover of Burt Bacharach's What the World Needs Now Is Love!

Kerry Washington is doing her part in raising awareness about the realities of domestic violence.

Many don't realize financial abuse is the leading reason women stay trapped in abusive relationships.

The 39-year-old actress pressed:

"Financial abuse is such an invisible weapon. It's not something we think of. We can see black eyes and we can see bruising and I think, we think a lot about the emotional abuse, and all of those things are valid, but to know that financial abuse is the number one reason why women stay and why they can't walk away — it matters so much to be able to do something about that because it unlocks the solutions in the other areas as well."

Miz Washington also explained to People why she is clearly so passionate about this collaboration:
