Unsurprisingly, Justin Timberlake took home the Song of the Year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards for “Can’t Stop The Feeling“! As he accepted his award he proclaimed support for LGBTQ kids in Trump’s America.

“If you’re gay, or you’re lesbian, or you are trans, or maybe you’re just a sissy singer boy from Tennessee — anyone who has treated you unkindly, it’s only because they’re afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are. Because being different means you make a difference. So, fuck ‘em.” (via Jezebel)
It’s great to see straight artists rise up and declaring their ally-ship in the current political climate, it lets the ignorant people know that even “normal” people support LGBTQ rights.
