Rising musician Julia Weldon released today her newest song, "Til the Crying Fades," and an accompanying music video, which honors the 49 lives lost on June 12, 2016, in Orlando’s queer nightclub Pulse. Weldon invited director Alessandra Lacorazza and producer Justine LaViolette to create a video that celebrates the diversity of the LGBTQ community, as drag queens, dancers and local artists are featured in the film's colorful cast.

The location of the video is aptly set within a queer bar, which Lacorazza says underlines the importance of safe spaces for marginalized communities. Lacorazza also felt it was important to highlight the tragedy as something that especially shook the Latinx community, saying, "While the attack on Pulse deeply affected the whole LGBTQIA community it disproportionately affected the Latinx community, as most of the victims were Latinx."

Weldon’s new album, Comatose Hope, focuses on the dark realities of the world, and how these occurrences deserve to be acknowledged rather than overlooked. She found inspiration to create the album after falling into coma a week after receiving gender affirming surgery. The singer experienced major setbacks after waking, as her damaged sensory perceptions made simple tasks like walking, talking and eating a challenge. Her perseverance led to a speedy recovery and to create a KickStarter page to fund Comatose Hope, now scheduled for premiere on July 13.

Moms Mabley

With her toothless grin, floppy hat and tell-it-like-it-is persona, Moms Mabley may be one of the most influential comedians you don’t know. She rose to fame in the early decades of the 20th century on the chitlins circuit — the collection of stages around the country that employed black entertainers during segregation — and she would go on to a career that spanned more than 50 years. In that time, she pushed beyond racial and gender barriers, but she drew mainstream attention only starting in the 196os (she died in 1975) and little of her work has survived on film or video. That hasn’t deterred Whoopi Goldberg
