Taylor Swift Joins GLAAD Campaign Calling For Passage Of Equality Act

In a message of support for the LGBTQ community marking the beginning of Pride Month, Taylor Swift called on Congress to pass the Equality Act.

“I want to take a moment and thank the courageous activists, advocates and allies for their dedication to fighting against discrimination and hatred,” Swift said at the beginning of a statement she posted on Twitter on Tuesday.

“And as always, today I am 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,” she added.

“I proudly join GLAAD in their #summerofequality and add my voice to those who support The Equality Act. Happy Pride Month,” said Swift, a vocal proponent of the legislation.

GLAAD recently launched the “Summer of Equality” campaign to help educate Americans on the purpose of the Equality Act.

The LGBTQ organization’s CEO and president Sarah Kate Ellis thanked Swift for helping them launch the campaign “to get every senator to vote yes.”
