Vários artistas, incluindo a cantora Beyoncé, resolveram criticar a decisão de Donald Trump de proibir estudantes transexuais de utilizarem banheiros que se adequassem à sua identidade de gênero.
“Estudantes LGBTQ precisam saber que nós apoiamos eles”, afirmou a cantora através de seu Facebook, aproveitando para divulgar a campanha 100 Days of Kindness.
Dentre os outros artistas que fizeram declarações contra a nova decisão estão Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear), Tegan & Sara, John Legend e Laura Jane Grace, do Against Me! — que entrou mais a fundo no assunto em uma entrevista para a Rolling Stone.

#LGBTQ students need to know we support them. Share your support to #protecttransyouth at glsen.org/100days & put #KindnessInAction GLSEN
This is a crucial time in our history. Transgender rights are CIVIL RIGHTS. No matter where you are on the LGBTQ spectrum this should hit you close to home. We MUST stand up for our family because we are stronger TOGETHER. Do NOT be silent. We have spent far too much time focused on the issues that impact us personally without defending and demanding the same equality and justice for the most marginalized. That must change. The LGBTQ community still needs strong allies, so for those of you who don’t know or don’t care about what is happening right now, please get informed! LGBTQ people are POC, Muslim, Refugees, Immigrants, Disabled, Democrats, Republicans, World Citizens, Kids, Senior Citizens! When they come for some of us, they come for all of us! @womensmarch
If you have the means, please consider donating to @translifeline While it is tremendously discouraging to see the current Republican administration rolling back rights that protect the most vulnerable members of our LGBTQ community we must continue to demand dignity and rights for our transgender family. We need to express our outrage. We need to show our solidarity. Now. ?❤
