“We can’t talk about Pride Month without talking about pain,” she said. “There have been so many harmful pieces of legislation that have put people in the LGBTQ and queer community at risk. It’s painful for everyone, every ally, every loved one, every person in these communities, and that’s why I’m always posting, ‘This is when the midterms are, this is when these important key primaries are.'”

Reminding fans about the importance of voting, she emphasized, “We can support as much as we want during Pride Month, but if we’re not doing our research on these elected officials—are they advocates? Are they allies? Are they protectors of equality? Do I want to vote for them?”

Taylor’s public support for the LGBTQ+ community is far from a one-off. At June 2019’s Wango Tango, at the start of Pride Month, Taylor reaffirmed her support for the community. Wearing a pastel rainbow outfit, she expressed support for equal love and rights. In the same year, she launched a petition supporting the Equality Act, urging her fans to stand together for fair and equal treatment.
