Ricky Martin Wants You to Give a Damn!

The Give a Damn Campaign has released a new PSA regarding hate crimes in the wake of the Rutgers student suicide.

Ricky Martin, Elton John, Idina Menzel, Rachel Harris and Wanda Sykes are the latest stars to speak out against against hate crimes based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

"It’s time to give a damn because hate crimes involve beatings, rape, torture—even murder. Victims are targeted because of their sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religion, race, color or any number of superficial factors. According to FBI statistics, 1 out of every 6 hate crimes is committed on the basis of sexual orientation."
