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!

What an emotional day.

As we continue to try to grapple with the horrible events that occurred in Orlando early Sunday morning, celebrities are proving they have been just as emotionally stung by the violence as we are — and they are showing strength and love.

Several celebs — including Nick Jonas, Lady GaGa, Andy Cohen, Tituss Burgess, and more — spoke at vigils around the country on Monday night, memorializing the victims of the weekend's senseless attack.

Burgess spoke at a vigil in New York City, and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actor was obviously extremely emotional — and took the shooting personally, as so many of us have. He said:

"I have to tell you, being here and seeing all of your faces has comforted me in a way that I did not expect coming down here. I am indeed Orlando, and in times like this, I find myself at a loss for what to do. I love you guys."

Burgess sang Somewhere from West Side Story in an attempt to bring the crowd unity, before departing the stage in an obviously emotional state:

Love, According To Miley Cyrus!

Filed under: Love LineInspirationMiley CyrusPhotos!AdviceAwwwwwHeartwarmingLGBT

Girl sure knows what she's talking about!

We think it's safe to say Miley Cyrus is an expert on love at this point.

The blonde beauty has had her fair share of romantic connections. The songbird's dated both men and women — and she's become an incredible advocate for LGBT and human rights.

The pop princess and her one true love, Liam Hemsworth, broke up years ago — but she was still able to eventually rekindle that spark and pick things right back up where they had left off.
