Todrick Hall Says People Don’t Realize That Taylor Swift’s LGBT Support Is A Huge

“I know that it is a dangerous thing, or a scary thing more I should say, for somebody on such a huge level who has so many fans that are in the bible belt and in the midwest, who completely don’t agree with the lifestyle that I lead.” 

– Todrick Hall

Hall was an executive producer and appeared in the music video for Swift’s song “You Need To Calm Down.” The song’s lyrics address anti-gay protesters, with Swift saying “control your urges to scream about all the people you hate / ‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay.”

“Maybe a year or two ago, Todrick and I are in the car, and he asked me, What would you do if your son was gay?”

Swift explained she was saddened that her friend even had to ask the question, and realized that maybe her fans dont know either.

“If he was thinking that, I can’t imagine what my fans in the LGBTQ community might be thinking, It was kind of devastating to realize that I hadn’t been publicly clear about that.”

“For her to put out a video that’s completely like backing [gay rights] and also saying that anybody who goes out of their way to scream and yell and make posters and go against those people’s lifestyle, needs to calm down and that’s a lot of her fans, a lot of people that follow her.She definitely does have fans who don’t agree with gay marriage, I’m sure.”

 Despite the potential backlash, Swift never wavered in her commitment.

“I didn’t see her wince or be like ‘I don’t know if I should do this, She was 100% like ‘this is something that needs to happen that i need to do. I obviously couldn’t be more proud of her.”
