The famous pop star Taylor Swift donates $113,000 to a non-profit organisation in Tennessee that fights against anti-LGBT laws.

Taylor Swift has been an active ally of the LGBTQ community though she is not a part of it. And, the amount number is not very surprising as Taylor has a love for number 13.

“I realized that it actually is my responsibility to use my influence against that disgusting rhetoric,” Swift wrote. “I’m going to do more to help. We have a big race coming up next year.”

The Tennessee equality project has currently assembled 100 religious leaders to abolish the six anti-LGBTQ bills. The nickname of the bills is “Slate of Hate.” Bills in the “Slate of Hate” includes of two majorly discriminating and hateful bills. One of them being the protection of private adoption agencies that discriminate on the basis of religion. Another one being requirement of an Attorney General for the defence of schools which engage in anti-transgender bathroom discrimination.

This step was taken by Taylor Swift to gather the attention of her fans towards what is happening in the state legislature. Taylor has spent most of her life in Tennessee as it has been a very important part of her career.

Taylor has also been vocal about her stand for LGBTQ  community.  She also dedicated her song “Delicate” to the LGBTQ Community during one of her shows. In October, she endorsed two Democratic candidates for Congress, drawing both praise and criticism: Donald Trump said he now liked Swift’s music “about 25% less”.

The fight for equality is long, but there is hope ahead.
