Stop The Hate: A Short Film

June was celebrated as LGBT pride month. Sadly on June 12, 49 people were ruthlessly gunned down at a gay club in Orlando, Florida. Producer Ryan Murphy and Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin got together with 49 celebrities to create a short film as a tribute to the victims of the mass shooting.

Stop the hate

Stop The Hate is an 18-minute film that pays homage to the victims. With a black background the 49 celebrities – all dressed in black – read out heart-touching eulogies for the 49 victims. The somber set of the project, and the eulogies were a fitting message from celebrities who expressed their despair and sorrow. Celebrities like Jane Fonda, Chris Pine, Lea Michele, Laverne Cox, Caitlyn Jenner, Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett, and many more joined the project.  

The moving short film makes us think hard about laws surrounding the LGBT community and the hate crimes that are being committed. The film also tells us that the US congress has voted down Commonsense Gun Safety laws four times, and has introduced more than 200 Bills targeting the LGBT community. In India, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code criminalizes acts of sexual nature between persons of the same sex. The law that’s being carried on from the age of Britishers (year 1860 to be exact!) is a regressive law that, in a way, propagates hate crimes by invalidating the LGBT community. This rise of intolerance in the world is heart-breaking and must be stopped. 

Stop The Hate short film ends with the campaign Stop The Hate, asking people to join the movement. Watch the film here.
