Taylor Swift was also spotted wishing fans a happy Pride Month on Twitter – a post which later went viral.
“I want to take a moment to thank the courageous activists, advocates and allies for their dedication to fighting against discrimination and hatred,” Swift said in a social media post.
“And as always, today I’m sending my respect and love to those bravely living out their truth, even when the world we live in still makes that hard to do.
“Who you love and how you identify shouldn’t put you in danger, leave you vulnerable or hold you back in life.”
