The Los Angeles LGBT Center has released a video for the song Hands of Love from the movie Freeheld in hopes of landing an Oscar nomination in the Best Song category.

Out singer-songwriter Linda Perry wrote the song after seeing the film.

According to Deadline, Perry began writing the song during the film's screening. Miley Cyrus' version of the song has been streamed more than 7.5 million times on Spotify.

The LGBT Center's video features historical footage of the gay rights movement set to Perry's original demo.

Familiar images from Matthew Shepard's murder, the AIDS crisis and fight over Don't Ask, Don't Tell to wedding bells for gay and lesbian couples after the Supreme Court's landmark ruling are set to Perry's moving lyrics.

Freeheld stars Julianne Moore and Ellen Page as a lesbian couple battling a discriminatory government.

Tobey Maguire, Christina Aguilera and Sara Gilbert, who is married to Perry, are hosting a party on Tuesday to draw attention to the song as Oscar voting continues.

Oscar nominations will be announced on Thursday, January 14.
