Known for her advocacy for LGBT rights, Lady Gaga was in Los Angeles alongside hundreds of people Monday night on a vigil in memory of the victims of the Orlando, Florida massacre. Forty-nine people lost their lives in the gay club Pulse, on the night of Saturday to Sunday. With tears in his eyes, the interpreter of “Born this Way” paid tribute to the victims. “We have seen the biggest mass killing in America, and I can’t help but think that this level of hatred is an attack on humanity itself, it is an attack on everybody. Tonight, I unite with you as a human being, in peace, in all sincerity, in solidarity, in order to mourn these beautiful and innocent people. “
“You are not alone”
Lady Gaga reiterated her support for the victims, but also for the entire LGBT community: “I hope you know that I, and so many others, are your allies. Not just me, but everyone here, we represent the compassion and loyalty of millions of people around the world who believe in you. You are not alone. Tomorrow, I hope we will find solutions. But tonight and now, Orlando, we are united with you. Lady Gaga then read the names of the victims who lost their lives in Orlando.
