"LGBTQ students need to know we support them," the singer said on Facebook.

Shortly after the Trump administration withdrew protections for transgender students in public schools, Beyonce voiced her support for trans youth on Facebook.

“#LGBTQ students need to know we support them. Share your support to #protecttransyouth at glsen.org/100days & put #KindnessInAction GLSEN,” Beyonce wrote on Facebook.

100 Days of Kindness is a national campaign that allows people to post messages of support for LGBTQ students on social media via the hashtag #KindnessInAction. Social media users can upload posts via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and are encouraged to include a photo or short video message. Each message shared will join a virtual wall of kindness on the official campaign website.

Beyonce joins a roster of celebrities who have spoken out against Donald Trump's most recent decision that also includes Katy Perry, Sia, Blink-182's Mark Hoppus and several more expressing their support for the LGBTQ community.
