It's been over a month since she released a single, and there's still very little information available about her upcoming album, but today Taylor Swift is promoting a far more important project: LGBTQ+ equality. On the first day of Pride Month, Swift posted a letter addressed to Republican Tennessee senator Lamar Alexander. Swift writes that "For American citizens to be denied jobs or housing based on who they love or how they identify, in my opinion, is un-American and cruel," and implores him to vote for the Equality Act in the upcoming Senate vote. In the well-researched letter, which takes two posts to fully capture, Swift also cites statistics showing that the majority of Tennessee residents (including Swift herself) "support laws for protection of LGBTQ people against discrimination," and notes that this issue has the potential to affect Tennessee's economy, with many companies preferring to do business in states with stronger anti-discrimination policies. Swift even calls out President Trump's recent statement on the bill, writing that his words "impl[y] that there is something morally wrong with being anything other than heterosexual and cisgender.

In her caption, Swift asks followers to use #lettertomysenator to show their own letters, and directs them to an online petition in support of the Equality Act.

๐ŸŒˆHAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!!๐ŸŒˆ While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally. 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. Iโ€™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. Iโ€™ll be looking for your letters by searching the hashtag #lettertomysenator. While thereโ€™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. Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change. Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™ve created a petition at to urge the Senate to support the Equality Act. Our countryโ€™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. Letโ€™s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ Click the link in my bio to sign the petition for Senate support of the Equality Act.

This isn't the first time Swift has used Instagram to raise awareness about a political issue. She also posted in favor of Democratic Tennessee senate candidate Phil Bredesen last year, and publicly donated money to the March For Our Lives campaign to end gun violence.

Across the pond, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also commemorated the start of Pride Month with an Instagram post. The @Sussexroyal "rotates" the accounts it follows based on charities and organizations Meghan and Harry wish to raise the profile of, and this month it's groups like the Elton John Aids Foundation, The Trevor Project and It Gets Better. The account also posted a collage of nine images, including one of Harry's late mother Princess Diana visiting HIV-positive Gerard McGrath in the hospital as part of her AIDS activism work. In the caption, The Sussexes wrote, "We stand with you and support you ?Because itโ€™s very simple: love is love."
