Beyoncé Takes A Stand For LGBTQ Students After Trump Ruling
Transgender students will no longer have the right to use bathrooms or locker rooms of their choice under the Donald Trump administration, and Beyoncé is not here for it. On Wednesday (Feb. 23), the Grammy Award-winning singer took to Facebook to make her stance on the president’s ruling clear. “#LGBTQ students need to know we support them,” she wrote.
Queen Bey also took the opportunity to encourage her 64.5 million followers to pledge their support to trans youth by celebrating “100 Days of Kindness” with GLSEN, the leading organization in championing LGBTQ issues in K-12 education.
“We are so thrilled that Beyoncé is standing up for transgender youth by joining GLSEN’s 100 Days of Kindness Campaign at this very difficult time,” GLSEN Executive Director Dr. Eliza Byard told the Huffington Post in a statement. “There is a great deal of confusion and fear out there right now, and Beyoncé has the unique power to cut through the noise to deliver a crucial message of love and support to all transgender youth. Thank you, Beyoncé. (And I cannot wait to tell my daughters about your support.)”
Salute to Beyoncé for continuing to use her platform for greater good. Join GLSEN’s national campaign here.
