Taylor Swift kicked off Pride month by joining with GLAAD to convince Congress to pass the Equality Act.
On Tuesday (June 1st), the “Cardigan” singer tweeted, “I want to take a moment to thank the courageous activists, advocates and allies for their dedication to fighting against discrimination and hatred. And as always, today I’m sending my respect and love to those bravely living out their truth, even when the world we live in still makes that so hard to do.
“Who you love and how you identify shouldn’t put you in danger, leave you vulnerable or hold you back in life. I proudly join GLAAD in their #summerofequality and add my voice to those who support the Equality Act.”
The Equality Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives on February 25th, 2021, and is awaiting action in the U.S. Senate. If passed, the Equality Act will provide LGBTQ Americans with federal nondiscrimination protections for the first time in history.
