Beyoncé has joined the long list of celebrities showing support for LGBTQ youth following the White House’s controversial decision to rescind a policy prohibiting schools from discriminating against transgender students.

On her Facebook page, the Lemonade singer shared a short message to LGBTQ students alongside a link to GLSEN’s 100 Days of Kindness Challenge, a social media campaign that encourages users to post messages of support for the LGBTQ community to form a “virtual wall of kindness.”

“LGBTQ students need to know we support them. Share your support to #protecttransyouth at glsen.org/100days & put #KindnessInAction GLSEN.”

GLSEN’s executive director, Dr. Eliza Byard told the Huffington Post that she is “thrilled” to see the singer standing by transgender youth.

“There is a great deal of confusion and fear out there right now, and Beyoncé has the unique power to cut through the noise to deliver a crucial message of love and support to all transgender youth,” Byard said. “Thank you, Beyoncé. (And I cannot wait to tell my daughters about your support.)”
