Spotify is celebrating pride this week with music.

In the Genre & Moods section on Spotify – in addition to options ranging from “Pop” to “Chill” – there's an entire Pride section donned in rainbow.

At the very top of the #PressPlayForPride window is an entire playlist dedicated to Pulse Orlando Night Club Ultra Lounge, which faced the worst mass shooting in United States history this weekend. “Our hearts are with Orlando and the LGBT community,” the description reads. “Support victims of Pulse here. #WeAreOrlando.”

Spotify’s playlist features songs such as Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s “Over the Rainbow” and Michael Jackson’s “Heal the World.

”Since its creation at this morning, the playlist has over 6,500 followers.

Other #PressPlayForPride lists, such as “Loud & Proud” and “Pride Classics,” each have over 29,000 followers.
