Beyoncé and Jay Z were public supporters of Hillary Clinton, and their support drew the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump during the election. The hip-hop power couple and Trump clearly have far different political leanings.
In light of the Trump administration formally rescinding federal bathroom access protections for transgender students earlier this week, Beyoncé spoke out on Thursday.
The singer posted her opposition to Trump’s actions on Facebook.
Beyoncé directed readers to support 100 Days of Kindness, a national campaign that provides messages of support and empathy to LGBTQ students.
“Since the election, we’ve seen an increase in reports of harassment, bullying, and violence towards LGBTQ students in schools,” GLSEN, the organization running 100 Days of Kindness, states on its website. “Now with a new administration in office, there’s growing anxiety among LGBTQ students about what they might face.
“We have to let these students know we support them. That’s why we launched 100 Days of Kindness—a national campaign inviting our community to post messages of support to LGBTQ students on social media by sharing moments of #KindnessInAction.”
During the Formation tour in 2016, Beyonce spoke out on the House Bill 2 controversy in North Carolina
“It is important for us to bring attention to those who are committed to being good and carrying on the message of equality in this core of controversy,” she wrote on her website.
