“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,” Swift said in a statement. “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. Happy Pride Month!”
GLAAD has created a petition that every American can sign in order to support the passing of the Equality Act, which will be sent directly to each supporter’s state senators. Throughout the summer, the organization will be educating Americans about the need for this legislation and other ways they can take action to ensure their Senators pass the bill.
“Passing the Equality Act must be a priority for the safety and progress of every LGBTQ American,” GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis wrote on Twitter. “Thank you @taylorswift13 for helping us launch #summerofequality to get every senator to vote yes. Add your name to the @GLAAD petition below and make sure your voice is heard and our core values are secure: equality is for everyone. Sign up here and we’ll contact your Senators.”
