John Legend’s ‘Love Me Now’ video includes LGBT representation

Oscar winning singer-songwriter John Legend joins the likes of Madonna, Sia and Lady Gaga with his “Love Me Now” music video, which is helping with LGBT representation by including members of the LGBT community.

Oscar winning singer-songwriter John Legend’s “Love Me Now” music video, which debuted in November, is helping with LGBT representation by including members of the LGBT community.

The “Love Me Now” music video – which has cameo appearances from Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen and baby daughter Luna – includes Pulse nightclub shooting survivor Norman Casiano, 26, and Ryan Cunnington, 20. Casiano, who was born in San Juan City in Puerto Rico and moved to Orlando in 1996, was shot twice in the shooting; he is now healing with friends and family. Cunnington, meanwhile, was born in Fort Myers, Florida but moved to Orlando, Florida where he is currently studying exercise science for occupational therapy while working as a part time server.

Norman Casiano, 26, and Ryan Cunnington, 20, both currently reside in the city of Orlando. Norman was born in the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico and moved to Orlando in 1996 where he has resided ever since. He attended college at Le Cordon Bleu and received his associated degree but soon decided that the kitchen wasn't for him. Instead, he would pursue his passions in fashion and makeup. Norman frequented Pulse nightclub and felt safe there until June 12th, when a gunman rained fire on them and some close friends. Norman was shot twice and although his life changed dramatically on that night, he has begun his healing process and continues to do better thanks to his friends and family. Ryan was born in Fort Myers, Florida and went to FGCU, but recently moved to Orlando to transfer to UCF. He is currently studying exercise science for occupational therapy and works as a part time server. #LoveMeNow #LoveMeNowStories
