Before 1969, gays were oppressed by the government and it was illegal for same-sex to mingle in bars and socialize.
Which prompted the Stonewall Riots served as a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.
Why LGBTQ-Rights are More Important Than Ever:
Fast forward to now, 60 years since the Stone Wall riots gays are once again at a crossroads in America since we have a president who has been taking away gay rights by showing the rest of the country that is ok to be racist against African American, hate Mexicans or any South American native who crosses our borders, and to show prejudice by condemning gays. He states he wants to Make America Great Again (MAGA) – the definition of racism, hatred and prejudice and the only people support MAGA are white Americans. Why is that? because White America is threatened by the fact that our country has evolved and we’re becoming blended, multi-cultural and diverse. This is why Trump has planted his seeds around the states to help create a divide within our society so we destroy ourselves while he sits back and watches.
Luckily, some Americans can still see through the smoke screen of deceit and take a stand artistically because music is universal and can help send a message quicker, stronger and faster than one man campaigning to tear the USA apart.
This is why Taylor Swift’s new music video “You Need To Calm Down” is an important political LGBTQ-Rights Statement. Swift’s pro-gay single strangely compares her struggles with fame to more dangerous kinds of persecution. Read on…
CelebNMusic247.com supports Taylor Swift ‘s ‘You Need To Calm Down’ political LGBTQ-Rights Statement.
Back in 2018, Taylor Swift finally put an end to the Neo-Nazi’s worshiping her as an “Aryan goddess” – It was that same year that she endorsed two Tennessee Democrats in the 2018 midterm election.
Since then, Swift made a vow that her future music will contain more “political undertones.” She has kept her word, because “You Need To Calm Down” is all of that. Swift recently wrote in an essay for Elle that she was still “finding her voice in terms of politics…only as someone approaching 30 did I feel informed enough to speak about it.”
Taylor Swift has found her voice with her music video “You Need To Calm Down” which she performed over the weekend at the Stonewall Pride event:
Why we ar loving her ‘You Need To Calm Down’ video:
The video is a display of America’s gay community, and the hatred poised against the LGBTQ community. Taylor’s second verse takes on homophobic demonstrators with the lyrics:
Sunshine on the street at the parade / But you would rather be in the dark ages.
Swift’s video is filled with queer celebs doing famously queer things — like sipping tea, performing in drag, and getting married. It closes with a plug to sign a petition for the passage of the Equality Act, which would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and identity.
