To celebrate Pride Month, Taylor Swift penned a letter to the senator of Tennessee asking him to vote for the Equality Act. The night of June 1st had Swift performing at Wango Tango where she wore a fringed rainbow ensemble and made a speech about loving who you want to love.
She has always been inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community and has shown that through her lyrics. While some lyrics may not be directed toward pride, they can be anthems during pride month.
Here are the top 5 Taylor Swift lyrics for pride month.
#5 – Wonderland
“So we went on our way, too in love to think straight. All alone or so it seemed, but there were strangers watching and whispers turned to talking and talking turned to screams, oh” – Wonderland
The lyrics ‘too in love to think straight’ is what made me think of this song as a pride anthem. ‘Wonderland’ is a very underrated bop of Swift’s that more people should listen to.
#4 – Shake It Off
“It’s like I got this music in my mind saying it’s gonna be alright. The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake. I shake it off.” – Shake It Off
This whole song is about not caring what others think of you. Swift wore a rainbow dress on tour during this song and ‘Delicate.’ Shake off the haters and live life how you want to.
#3 – Delicate
“You must like me for me.” – Delicate
Before performing this song at Wango Tango, Swift made a speech about loving who you want to love and all of that being delicate. The song has taken on new meaning in the fandom after Swift has made different speeches before performing it on tour numerous times.
#2 – ME!
“One of these things is not like the others, like a rainbow with all of the colors.” – ME
Really the whole song is about individuality and loving yourself for who you are. Swift sings the song with Panic! At the Disco’s front man Brendon Urie, who identifies as pansexual.
#1 – Welcome To New York
“And you can want who you want, boys and boys and girls and girls.” – Welcome to New York
Swift tweeted out these lyrics in 2015 from WTNY after gay marriage was legalized in all 50 states, making it the official anthem of the LGBTQ+ Swifties.
