Taylor Swift has taken another political stand, this time advocating for LGBTQ residents in Tennessee. 

The songstress on Monday donated $113,000 to the Tennessee Equality Project, an LGBTQ advocacy group. The organization has been actively fighting a series of bills in the state, including one that permits adoption agencies to discriminate against same-sex couples based on religious beliefs. Another added bathrooms and locker rooms to a list of public places where someone can be charged with indecent exposure.

Many believe this "bathroom bill," passed Monday in the House of Representatives, will lead to transgender discrimination. A third of the six bills will make it the state's policy to defend marriage as being between one man and one woman.
