Taylor Swift apoya a comunidad LGBTQ

A propósito del mes del orgullo que comenzó en junio, Taylor Swift demostró todo su apoyo a la comunidad LGBTQ en su presentación en el festival “Wango Tango 2019”. Su atuendo en el escenario eran los colores del arco iris, símbolo mundial del reconocido movimiento.

La cantante también publicó una carta dirigida al Senado norteamericano pidiendo aprobar la Ley de Igualdad, para prohibir la discriminación contra personas de esta comunidad en sitios públicos, escuelas y lugares de trabajo. En el escrito, Taylor cuestiona la posición de Estados Unidos frente a este tema y la decisiva de aprobar la ley.

La cantante destaca en su publicación: “Si bien tenemos mucho que celebrar, también tenemos una gran distancia que recorrer antes de que todos los habitantes de este país reciban un trato igualitario”

🌈HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!!🌈 While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally. In excellent recent news, the House has passed the Equality Act, which would protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in their places of work, homes, schools, and other public accommodations. The next step 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 passed. I urge you to write to your senators too. I’ll be looking for your letters by searching the hashtag #lettertomysenator. While there’s no information yet as to when the Equality Act will go before the Senate for a vote, we do know this: Politicians need votes to stay in office. Votes come from the people. Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change. That’s why I’ve created a petition at change.org to urge the Senate to support the 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 mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable. Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 Click the link in my bio to sign the petition for Senate support of the Equality Act.
