Musician Jack Antonoff from Bleachers and Fun enlisted support from fellow A-list musicians and celebrities to sign an open letter addressing Texas lawmakers on anti-LGBTQ legislation.
The letter reads, “Texas Senate Bill 6 (SB6) and House Bill 1362 (HB1362) would criminalize and restrict the simple act of a transgender person using the restroom that aligns with their gender identity – a denial of basic human dignity.
“Other legislation in Texas would force teachers to out LGBTQ students to their parents — a violation of the trust built between kids and educators.”
More than 140 entertainers have signed the letter including musicians Lady Gaga, Sia, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Sting, Bon Iver, Carly Rae Jepsen, and actors Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lawrence, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Ewan McGregor, and Amy Poehler.
“I wrote this letter because I want them to know that me and all of my friends — all of these wonderful artists and actors and writers and designers — are watching Texas and are not OK with this happening,” he told Billboard.
