Yasmine Marries Gay Couple at Krewella Show During LA Pride [WATCH]

Just one night before the Orlando nightclub massacre, EDM duo Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf aka Krewella performed at the LA Pride Music Festival in West Hollywood Park. Since Yasmine is an ordained minister, the sisters decided to make a statement by marrying a lesbian couple right on stage.

The two sisters, who are half Pakistani and were raised Muslim, had no idea that within just hours, 49 innocent people would be slaughtered at a gay nightclub by an extremist who claimed allegiance to ISIL. The shooter, who was a frequenter of the nightclub and maintained a profile on Jack'd (a gay dating app), purchased assault weapons legally despite having been on an F.B.I. watch list.

With this - the most deadly terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11 - the video capturing the heartwarming marital moment during Krewella's show couldn't come at a better time. It's yet another reminder that "... love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside," as Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote for his speech at the Tonys.
