Taylor Swift is celebrating Pride Month with her fans. The 28-year-old singer, who is currently embarking on her Reputation stadium tour, made a stop in Chicago and gave a speech dedicated to members of the LGBTQ+ community. “It’s very brave to be vulnerable about your feelings in any sense [and] in any situation, but it’s even more brave to be honest about your feelings and who you love when you know that that might be met with adversity from society,” she said while donning a rainbow dress.
Swift continued, “This is a month where I think we need to celebrate how far we’ve come, [but] we also need to acknowledge how far we still have left to go. I want to send my love and respect out to everybody who in their journey in their life hasn’t felt comfortable enough to come out, and may you do that in your own time. And may we end up in a world where everyone can live and love fully, and no one has to be afraid to be vulnerable to say how they feel.”
The Grammy winner then performed “Delicate,” a song from her latest album, which has some fans interpreting the lyrics in a whole new way. Watch the heartfelt moment as it unfolded ahead.
