During an iHeartRadio Wango Tango concert on Saturday in California, Taylor Swift performedwearing a rainbow-colored ensemble, recalling Rolling Stones’ “She’s a Rainbow”. People connected her spectacular performance and variant attire with her previous night’s post on Instagram wherein she talked about protecting the rights of the LGBT communities.
The Wango Tango Concert is organized every year in the month of June to memorize the Stonewall riots of 1969, wherein members of gay community demonstrated against the police in the New York City. The concert organizes various pride events, making June a LGBT Pride Month.
Recognizing the LGBT rights and the importance of the pride month, Swift also showed her kindness towards the community by posting a lengthy letter to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn on her Instagram account. The aim was to appeal to the Senators to support the Equality Act by voting. The act is a clear ban on discrimination of all kinds based upon gender identity, looks, education, financial position etc.
In a caption she wrote, “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 hash tag #lettertomysenator,” she added.
Swift argued that the act would not disrupt religious freedom as several faith leaders have recently defended the LGBT community with the belief of providing equal rights for all. She even criticized President Trump, saying, “One cannot take the position that one supports a community, while condemning it in the next breath as going against ‘conscience’ or ‘parental rights.
As per her belief, such an act could misguide the people who have been living happily with their families of same-sex, or are transgender.
Soon after performing on Sunday, she even posted photos of the Wango Tango music festival on Instagram, wherein she was seen wearing a rainbow jumpsuit with colorful tassels. Her caption said, “Like a rainbow with all of the colors.”
The American singer and songwriter seemed to be delighted throughout her performance. Her colorful vest and tie-dye looking fringe, gave her a radiant look as if she was ready for a pride parade to bring out the best of her. She was vocal about her feelings and told how all of her songs were about love, as she believed everyone should be able to live their lives the way they want, stressing her stance on the Equality Act.
Denoting the people all over the country through the Wango Tango Concert’s stage, Swift favored the Equality Act saying, “If you sign it, it would really mean a lot to me, because I think we need to stick up for each other and stand together. Don’t you?” The measures actively denote that the singer has been trying very hard to protect the LGBT rights in their arenas of work to avoid discrimination.
