This is basically a masterpost of everything gay Taylor has done this era.
Performing with Hayley Kiyoko – December 5, 2018
As we all remember from the Reputation Era, during the tour Taylor brought Hayley out as a surprise guest.
Also, this happened.
Surprising a Gay Couple – February 23, 2019
Taylor surprised Alex Goldschmidt and Ross Girard at their engagement party. Taylor sang King of My Heart for them as well!
Elle Essay – March 6, 2019
For the US version of Taylor’s Elle article, she wrote about 30 things she’s learned in the last 30 (technically 29) years.
Here’s a quote that really stood out:
“We have to live bravely in order to truly feel alive, and that means not being ruled by our greatest fears.”
Sounds an awful lot like this part of her pride speech right?
“But it’s even more brave to be honest about your feelings and who you love when you know that that might be met with adversity from society.”
If you pay close attention to the numbers in the essay, the colors resemble the lesbian ride flag (different shades of red and pink). Here’s Taylor in her lesbian pride flag dress from tour too!
Rainbow Instagram Post – March 14, 2019
TEP Donation – April 8, 2019
Taylor donated $113,000 to Tennessee Equality Project, an organization that supports LGBT rights. Mike Curb from Curb Records also matched Taylor’s donation!
Single Announcement – April 13, 2019
Last October, Taylor posted this picture of her and Andrea playing Scrabble. Seems harmless right? Hahaha, no. This is Taylor Swift after all?? Fans speculated that because of the caption and the fact that National Scrabble day is April 13th, that something would be happening that day. April 13th is also a day that was stamped on the calendar Taylor released.
Fans ended up being correct. On April 13th, Taylor announced that something (presumably a single) would be released April 26th, 2019. April 26th also happens to be Lesbian Visibility Day. Coincidence? I think not. Here’s another post with tons of notes pointing out what day the 26th is as well.
Yellow Suit & Rainbow Rings – April 14, 2019
Taylor posted a close up of what appears to be her in a yellow suit wearing two rainbow rings.
It was eventually noticed that Taylor was wearing the two rainbow rings on her ring finger on her right hand. Here’s a post explaining more about what that means. This is important because there’s been heavy speculation that her and Karlie are engaged (at the very least).
