08/09/2019 | Washington Blade

Taylor Swift revealed that she was inspired to get vocal about LGBTQ activism after having a conversation with her friend, choreographer and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” judge Todrick Hall. In an interview with Vogue, Swift says Hall made a comment to her that changed her perspective on staying quiet. “Maybe a year or two ago, Todrick and I are in the car, and he asked me, What would you do if your son was gay? 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,” Swift says. She added: “Rights are being stripped from basically everyone who isn’t a straight white cisgender male. I didn’t realize until recently that I could advocate for a community that I’m not a part of.”
