Taylor Swift Donated A Huge $160K To A Tennessee LGBTQIA Rights Org

After remaining deafeningly silent on political issues for years, Taylor Swift just made a huge statement to let the world know that not only is she pro LGBTQIA+ rights but she’s also contributing to the cause in a colossal way.

The country-turned-pop music singer donated an extraordinary $160K to the Tennessee Equality Project (TEP), an organisation dedicated to protecting gay rights in the Volunteer State.

It’s worth noting that Swift did not announce the donation herself (no pun intended), it was the organisation who took to social media to share a handwritten letter penned by the pop sensation.

“I’m writing you to say that I’m so inspired by the work you do, specifically in organising the recent petition of Tennessee’s faith leaders standing up against the ‘Slate of Hate’ in our state legislature,” she began.

“Please convey my heartfelt thanks to them and accept this donation to support the work you and these leaders are doing.”

She concludes, “I’m so grateful that they’re giving all people a place to worship.”

“Taylor Swift has been a long-time ally to the LGBTQ community,” TEP captioned the image. “She sees our struggle in Tennessee and continues to add her voice with so many good people, including religious leaders, who are speaking out for love in the face of fear. Tennessee Equality Project is honored and grateful to reveal Taylor Swift has made a donation of $113,000 to support our efforts at this critical moment.”

“See her attached note in the photo. I will add a fuller image description tonight. For now, I will note that she in particular was glad to see so many faith leaders in Tennessee speak out.”

Swift, a proud Tennessean, previously dropped her apolitical stance before the 2018 midterm elections last November.

Just one month out from the midterms, Swift posted a Polaroid photo of herself on Instagram and urged her fans to get out and vote.
