Beyoncé Summons Her Beyhive To Support Transgender Youth


Donald Trump just ruled against transgender rights in school systems and Queen Bey is speaking out about it and calling on her beyhive to help.

It’s been a long day so far as Donald Trump and his administration just ruled against transgender students being protected under federal regulations. This once allowed them to use the bathrooms and locker rooms which matched their identities, and that was on a national level. Now, it’s up to the school to decide, and that’s not a good thing. Especially in communities where people who identify as transgender aren’t openly accepted.

Many celebrities have already spoken out about it on various social media websites. Beyonce’s came a bit later but is making a dramatic impact. This is the first time she’s posted on her Facebook page in a few weeks and the post came shortly after news dropped that the Lemonade singer would not be performing at Coachella this year due to her pregnancy. (Don’t worry. She’ll just headline next year instead.)

She shared a link to GLSEN’s 100 Days of Kindness. The goal is to provide a safer place for LGBTQ youth in this administration. Their website describes it simply:

"“Since the election, we’ve seen an increase in reports of harassment, bullying, and violence towards LGBTQ students in schools. Now with a new administration in office, there’s growing anxiety among LGBTQ students about what they might face.”"

GLSEN’s executive director, Dr. Eliza Byard, spoke to the Huffington Post about Beyonce’s recent message.

"“There is a great deal of confusion and fear out there right now, and Beyoncé has the unique power to cut through the noise to deliver a crucial message of love and support to all transgender youth.”"

All celebrities have that power right now and it’s nice to see so many stepping up to the plate and speaking out about how wrong this is.

The more noise we can create around the subject, the more impact we can have on pushing out country forward instead of backward.
