Taylor Swift packed a lot of easter eggs into her music video for “You Need to Calm Down,” but some fans believe she may have made a subtle statement about her own sexuality with one of them. Fans on Twitter noticed that at one point in the video, Swift is dressed like the bisexual pride flag. That flag is magenta, purple, and blue—similar to the colors the singer was sporting in her clothing and hair.
Swift has not commented about the speculation. But she has come out as a very vocal ally for the LGBTQ community, especially over the last couple of weeks.
At the end of her music video, Swift included a callout about her petition supporting the Equality Act. She began Pride Month by sharing the letter she wrote to her senator and encouraging others to do the same to voice their support for the legislation.
“HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!!🌈 While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally,” she wrote. “In excellent recent news, the House has passed the Equality Act, which would protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in their places of work, homes, schools, and other public accommodations. The next step is that the bill will go before the Senate. 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 hashtag #lettertomysenator.”
“While there’s no information yet as to when the Equality Act will go before the Senate for a vote, we do know this: Politicians need votes to stay in office. Votes come from the people,” she continued. “Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change. That’s why I’ve created a petition at change.org to urge the Senate to support the Equality Act. Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic. The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable.”
“Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 Click the link in my bio to sign the petition for Senate support of the Equality Act,” she concluded.
