Demi Lovato shared a book by her friend Alok Vaid-Menon on her Instagram on Saturday, as well as participating in Alok’s Instagram chat, where she talked about being an ally to both people of color and the trans community.
“I’m Hispanic, but I’m white-passing, so I’m like…what is my responsibility as an ally? I learned that I have to put my fears aside and speak up for all of the people of color that I love, that I don’t know, and the people that are being treated poorly and abused and killed,” she said during the chat.
“I need to put my fears aside…I just didn’t want anyone to question my intentions….I’m gonna be an ally, and I think people need to do the same with the trans community. I really consider myself an ally,” she added.
