This is just about the sweetest thing that could come from something so tragic.

Luis Vielma was just one of the 49 people senselessly killed at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, but he unfortunately also happened to be one of the youngest.

As such, we were saddened but not surprised when we first found out the 21-year-old was employed at The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort at the time of his death.

no title

This is beyond cute!

The Philadelphia Phillies had a tough day on Thursday, losing at home to the visiting Toronto Blue Jays 13-2, but while the MLB team wasn't showing out well on the field, one fan stole the show.

Brian Kucharik, a dad who brought his daughter to the game, is going viral right now after he caught a foul ball off the bat of the Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar… but it's how he did it that's catching everyone's eye!

Kucharik, sitting down the first base line, caught the ball one-handed — which is impressive enough considering how hard these balls get hit — but he also did it with his daughter Emily in his arms, AND while carrying a full plate of hot dogs and french fries!

Dayum, Brian!

Ch-ch-check out Brian doing his thing in real time and winding up with a nice souvenir (below)!!!

Mark is taking action.

Mark Cuban is trying to help prevent future tragedies.

On Wednesday, the Shark Tank star donated $1 million to help the Dallas Police Department better protect the city's LGBT community in the wake of the horrific shooting at Pulse nightclub that killed 49 people and injured dozens more.

The Dallas Mavericks owner's generous contribution will be able to pay for 16,000 hours of overtime for the city's police officers, that Chief David Brown will assign to boost counterterrorism efforts.

There are no words for how beautiful this is.

The LGBT community is still in shock over the news that 49 people were murdered at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend, but things are slowly starting to get better.

Not only did the House Democrats hold a filibuster on gun control on Wednesday (!), but celebrities have finally begun to do their parts for the victims and their families!

While celebs like Nick Jonas and Lady GaGa made sure to speak at candlelight vigils across the country, Melissa Etheridge is doing what she does best to raise awareness — music!

The out singer released a gorgeous song aptly titled Pulse on Thursday, and it could not do a better job of summarizing how we're feeling right now.

"How can I hate them, when everybody's got a pulse?"

Speechless.

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.

That's why it's more important than ever for everyone who identifies as queer — as well as our allies — to support one another in our time of need.

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!
