The #RestInPride campaign is honoring the 49 innocent victims killed in the Orlando shooting massacre with a touching show of support for the LGBTQ community.

Rumer Willis, Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis, My So Called Life star Wilson Cruz, Scandal's Guillermo Diaz, and Candis Cayne of I Am Cait, appear in the viral campaign launched on Thursday.

The nearly four-minute video features 49 people sharing 49 prideful stories in honor of the lives lost at Pulse nightclub earlier in the month. Each YouTube view will lead to a donation match to OneOrlando from a corporate donor.

The track "Light" from the Pulitzer Prize-winning 2009 musical, Next to Normal, plays in the background as the stories are being shared. All proceeds from the single will benefit the One Orlando Fund, which is also accepting donations. You can also find out more by visiting RestInPRIDE.org, plus you can upload your own videos on the Facebook RestinPRIDE page.

More than honoring those slain in the horrific and senseless act of violence, #RestInPride offers uplifting messages of resilience. The campaign also encourages the public to get involved by sharing personal prideful moments on the #RestInPride Facebook page.
