One Year After Pulse Nightclub Shooting, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Billy Eichner, Ellen DeGeneres & More Pay Tribute

Today (June 12) marks one year since a horrific mass shooting at Orlando's LBGTQ nightclub Pulse claimed 49 lives, making it the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

And while hundreds gather at the Florida nightclub -- now being developed into a museum and memorial site -- to take part in a public remembrance ceremony, Hollywood is taking to social media to pay tribute to the victims and their families.

The attack began at the LGBTQ space in the early morning of June 12, 2016 and continued for nearly 24 hours, leaving 49 dead and 53 injured. Orlando officials have since declared the date "Orlando United Day of Love and Kindness," and the somber anniversary is being noted by celebrities like Michelle Visage, Billy Eichner and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Follow along to their responses and others, below.

 

Our promise to the Pulse 49: you will NEVER be forgotten. We love you.
