"I definitely think there are political undertones in the new music I made,” Swift said. “I’m not planning to stop encouraging young people to vote and to try to get them to talk about what’s going on in our country. I think that’s one of the most important things I could do.”

On June 1, the first day of Pride Month, Swift posted a letter on her social media accounts that she wrote to Tennessee state Senator Lamar Alexander urging him to vote for the Equality Act, which protects LGBTQ+ people from discrimination.

“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,” she wrote.

In April 2018, Swift donated $113,000 to a Tennessee LGBTQ advocacy group.
