Watch dozens of celebrities make sure we never forget those killed in Orlando.

On June 12, 2016, a man walked into an Orlando nightclub, opened fire, and killed 49 people.

Many questions from that night remain. Namely: Why? Why them? Why that night? The question of "who," however — that's something we know. We know who the shooter was, and we know who the victims are.

A new video hopes to shine a light on stories of the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre, enlisting the help of 49 celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Laverne Cox, Chris Pine, and others.

Produced by the Human Rights Campaign and Ryan Murphy ("Glee," "American Horror Story"), the 18-minute film aims to keep the memories alive of those lost and ensure they did not die in vain.

"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," reads the video's description. "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."

Other celebrities featured include Cuba Gooding Jr., Connie Britton, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Lea Michele, Colton Haynes, Sophia Bush, Jane Fonda, Harry Shum Jr., Denis O’Hare, Rob Reiner, Melissa Benoist, Caitlyn Jenner, Édgar Ramírez, Max Greenfield, Chaz Bono, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts, Kerry Washington, George Lopez, Evan Rachel Wood, Sofia Vergara, Diego Boneta, Nina Jacobson, Tyler Oakley, Yeardley Smith, Kid Cudi, Kaitlin Olson, Kevin McHale, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lee Daniels, Chace Crawford, Evan Peters, Gerard Butler, Katey Sagal, John Stamos, Jordana Brewster, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Darren Criss, Kathy Bates, Anna Paquin, Guillermo Díaz, and Joe Mantello.
