Logo Produces Hate Crimes PSA

The folks over at Logo have brought together a wide range of talents - including Ashanti, Andre 3000, Sara Bareilles, Janet Jackson, T.R. Knight and Portia de Rossi - to speak out against hate crimes in a new public service announcement. The PSA was produced in the wake of the murder of 15-year-old Lawrence King, a gay teen in Oxnard, California, by fellow student Brandon McInerney, who is being charged with a hate crime. MTV Networks will be carrying the PSA, its latest contribution in a long history of hate crime education (did you know that back in January 2001, MTV replaced 18 hours of programming with nothing but names and stories of hate crime victims?).
