Lastnight (Dec. 2nd), The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show aired, with a star-studded list of musicians performing including Halsey. And Halsey is known to speak up for what she believes in and is a huge supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and will stand up for what is right. Earlier this month, the chief architects behind the VS Fashion Show made comments about the plus size and trans community, and now Halsey is speaking out on the topics.
Following Halsey’s televised performance last night, she took to her social media to address the comments made. The singer expressed her adoration for the show since she was a young child and how honored she as to perform but she also spoke on the comments that were made on the Trans and Plus size communities. Halsey saying, “I have adored the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since I was young. Performing this year alongside other amazing artists, and hardworking models/friends was supposed to be the best night of my year. However, after I filmed the performance, some comments were made regarding the show that I simply cannot ignore. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I have no tolerance to a lack of inclusivity, especially not one motivated by stereotype. If you’re on my page because you watched my performance tonight, please allow me to instead direct your attention to GLSEN: an organization that offers services aimed at protecting LGBTQ+ youth. And with respect to those youth targeted by these comments in a world where they have been made to feel ‘other,’ I have made a sizable donation in their honor. If you are a trans person reading this, and these comments have made you feel alienated or invalidated, please know that you have allies. We stand in solidarity and complete and total acceptance is the only ‘fantasy’ that I support.”
