Taylor Swift is taking a stand.
On Friday on Instagram , the Shake It Off vocalist posted a letter to Tennessee Senator, Lamar Alexander , exhorting him to vote for the Equality Act, which protects the LGBT community from discrimination.
” While “were having” so much better to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally. In excellent recent report, the House has passed the Equality Act, which would protect LGBTQ beings of all forms of discrimination in their neighbourhoods of job, homes, academies, and other public accommodations. The next gradation is that the bill will go before the Senate. I’ve decided to kick off Pride Month by writing a letter to one of my senators to explain how strongly I feel that the Equality Act should be transferred. I urge you to write to your senators more. I’ll be looking for your letters by searching the hashtag #lettertomysenator .”
She sustained 😛 TAGEND
” While there’s no message yet as to when the Equality Act will go before the Senate for a poll, we do know this: Politician need elections to stay in office. Referendum come from the people. Pressure from massive amounts of parties is a major way to push legislators towards positive change. That’s why I’ve made a application at change.org to recommend the Senate to substantiate its Equality Act. Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic. The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the blessing of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and undesirable .”
Overall, the songstress recommends everyone to” demonstrate[ their] pride by involve that, on a national level, our laws absolutely treat all of our citizens evenly .”
As we reported, Swift’s upcoming seventh book will have” political undertones .”
While speaking with German outlet RTL , the songwriter exposed 😛 TAGEND
“I certainly think there are political undertones in the new music I formed. I’m not planning to stop encouraging young people to vote and to try to get them to talk about what’s going on in our country. I think that’s one of the most important things I could do.”
