Weekly News Update: Tay donates to the Tennessee Equality Project

Nothing good stars in a getaway car, Taylor Nation

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who prefers to use public transportation, we can’t help but agree. A nineteen-year old crashed a stolen car into the gate of Taylor Swift’s home in Rhode Island last Tuesday, April 2nd. The quip was made by Taylor herself to a twitter post from ET Canada about the news, as reported by People.

In other news with more lasting impact, the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar made a contribution to the Tennessee Equality Project of $113,000 USD. According to Out & About Nashville, the songstress also showed her support for the foundation which is an educational wing to advocate LGBTQ rights across the state. It also came with a letter.


Dear Chris,

I’m writing you to say that I’m so inspired by the work you do, specifically in organizing the recent petition of Tennessee Faith Leaders standing up against the ‘State of Hate’ in our State legislature. Please convey my heartfelt thanks to them and accept this donation to support the work you and these leaders are doing.

I’m so grateful that they’re giving all people a place to worship.


Taylor Swift

I know some might see Taylor’s donation as a political stance, but I prefer to see this as a human stance. The right to worship IS a human right. People don’t stop having rights regardless of who they are or who they love. Okey, I’m done now.

By the way, did you notice the letterhead? Taylor Swift. Born in 1989. Loves cats.

Coming up in the Calendar:

  • Universe collapses because nobody knows where Taylor will appear next.
