If you've been following Taylor Swift's career over the past few months, then you know that she's become VERY outspoken in her support for LGBTQ equality.
She publicly endorsed LGBTQ-friendly politicians, started a Change.org petition to pass the Equality Act, and even released a delightfully queer song and music video, "You Need To Calm Down."
For many people, this has all come as a big surprise. Given Taylor's country music roots and her notable silence during the 2016 election, many wondered if she was conservative.
And in a candid new interview with Vogue, Taylor says it was a disturbing moment with her friend Todrick Hall that made her realize she needed to speak out more.
“Maybe a year or two ago, Todrick and I are in the car," Taylor said. "And he asked me, 'What would you do if your son was gay?'”
According to Taylor, the question "shocked" her:
The fact that he had to ask me...shocked me and made me realize that I had not made my position clear enough or loud enough. If my son was gay, he’d be gay. I don’t understand the question.
