Taylor Swift’s new Pride music video is jam-packed with over 20 cameos from LGBTQ icons

Taylor Swift just premiered the music video for her new Pride anthem “You Need To Calm Down” and, well, we’re having a hard time calming down.

The video is jam-packed with over 20 cameos from some of our favorite LGBTQ icons and allies.

The star-studded cast includes Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan van Ness, Bobby Berk and Tan France, Ciara, RuPaul, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita, Billy Porter, Adam Lambert, Adam Rippon, Ryan Reynolds, Hayley Kiyoko, Todrick Hall, Chester Lockhart, Dexter Mayfield, and Hannah Hart.

It ends with a call to action. Swift appeals to fans to sign a petition for Senate support of the Equality Act, urging them: “Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally.”
