"For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder," the video reads.

"It's on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence."

After the shootings, Lady Gaga, a passionate advocate for the LGBTQ community, fronted a vigil at Los Angeles' City Hall honouring the victims.

"Let's all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and to their families, who are suffering so deeply," she said.



"They are sons and daughters, they're fathers and mother, they are all of our brothers and sisters. Tonight, I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack to overshadow our need to honour those who are grieving, truly, for their lost ones."
