Taylor Swift Just Donated $113,000 To An Organisation That Fights Anti-LGBT Laws In Tennessee
"She sees our struggle in Tennessee and continues to add her voice with so many good people ... who are speaking out for love in the face of fear."
The group's leader, Chris Sanders, shared the news on Facebook on Monday alongside a photo of a handwritten note from Taylor explaining why she decided to make the donation.
Taylor's note reads:
I'm writing you to say that I'm so inspired by the work you do, specifically in organising the recent petition of Tennessee faith leaders standing up against the 'Slate of Hate' in our state legislature. Please convey my heartfelt thanks to them and accept this donation to support the work you and those leaders are doing.
I'm so grateful that they're giving all people a place to worship.
Sincerely, Taylor Swift
In October last year, Taylor cited the importance of LGBT rights as one of her reasons for endorsing Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen for Senate.
In fact, Taylor has been vocal about her support for LGBT rights for quite some time now.
She recognised Pride Month this past June, dedicating her song "Delicate" to the LGBT community during a show of her Reputation Stadium Tour.
Many people — including stars like Ellen DeGeneres and Katy Perry — shared their appreciation for Taylor's support of the community.
Phil Bredesen's name was misspelled in an earlier version of this post.
