For most of her career, Taylor Swift hasn't been one to get political, but that slowly seems to be changing: The 2018 midterms saw her taking to social media to urge fans to get out and vote—she even endorsed candidates running to represent her home state of Tennessee in Congress. She's been keeping up the new trend too. In April she donated $133,000 to the LGBTQ+ rights-focused Tennessee Equality Project, and on Saturday she posted a letter on Instagram addressed to Republican senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee. Her public message urged him to vote for the Equality Act recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, which would protect members of the LGBTQ+ community from discrimination in their homes, workplaces, schools, and other public accommodation. (Her Instagram bio now reads "Support the Equality Act.")

Hours after she posted her letter, she took to the stage at iHeartRadio's Wango Tango—and she came dressed to celebrate Pride Month in a rainbow outfit. “I just feel like who you love and how you identify, you should be able to live your life the way you want to live your life, and you should have the same exact rights as everyone else,” she said to her audience.

It was a pretty incredible outfit: The matching rainbow-patterned set of high-waisted lace-up shorts and cropped, fringed long-sleeve top was worn with a yellow tee underneath—and some rainbow sneakers.

Swift also had a surprise for fans: Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie appeared on stage to sing their single, "ME!". Urie, who identifies as pansexual, was also wearing his pride, with a T-shirt reading "100% love, 100% equality, 100% loud, 100% proud, 100% together, 100% me" in a rainbow pattern.

It was right in line with the message Swift had sent to Sen. Alexander earlier that day: "Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally," she wrote in the caption accompanying the letter.
