Demi Lovato Stirs Controversy With Shirt At Billboard Awards

On Sunday, singer Demi Lovato stirred up emotions when she decided to make a statement during her performance. She wore a sheer black shirt that showed her support for the transgender community. The controversial shirt seemed to take direct aim at House Bill (HB2). The bill was signed by North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory on March 23 and prohibits transgender people from using the public restroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

On Sunday, GLAAD also announced that a replica of the T-shirt will be sold during Lovato and Jonas’ Honda Civic Tour: Future Now and the proceeds will be donated to LGBT organizations in North Carolina. Lovato and Nick Jonas are going on tour together, but have canceled their Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina tour dates because of HB2.

GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a press release after Lovato’s performance, “Demi Lovato continues to be a fearless ally for LGBT equality and acceptance. By wearing her support for the transgender community, Lovato is raising critical visibility for vulnerable LGBT North Carolinians and sending an invaluable message of support to transgender people everywhere.”
