And Taylor is going viral for one moment in particular, when she was adjusting her dress.

“Just trying to look nice for my guys and gals and non-binary pals,” Taylor said in the video, which has almost 600,000 views in less than 24 hours.

People loved her use of inclusive language, especially from a person of her star power:

“Non-binary pals” 🥹❤️

Hearing Taylor Swift mention anything gender related to a crowd of almost 70K people is very heartwarming. Someone in that crowd felt validated and that’s all that matters right now. https://t.co/WTrBR6e8s4

This isn’t the first time she’s spoken about or shown that she’s an ally. During her Wango Tango set in 2019, Taylor gave an impassioned speech about equality. “Who you love, how you identify, you should be able to live your life the way you want to live your life.”

That same year, Taylor started a petition on Change.org, advocating for the Equality Act. It received over 847,000 signatures.

“Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic,” Taylor wrote. “The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable. Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally.”

She also donated $113,000 to the Tennessee Equality Project, which fought anti-LGTBQ hate and inequality in the state.
