Michael Saldate, Lee's husband, and Ian Clayton, Ling's husband, will appear together and speak at the vigil. Lee is a 2001 graduate of Academy of Art University's School of Motion Pictures and Television in San Francisco.
Current and past cast members of Hair, The Musical, as well as well as Young Performers International, have volunteered to perform in honor of the cause. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco city officials have been invited, the university said in a press release.
The gathering will be webcast live.
