Bleachers' front man Jack Antonoff continues his efforts in support of the gay community by gathering 142 of his closest celebrity artists/writers/creators to help deliver a message to Texas legislators considering Texas Senate Bill 6 (SB6) and House Bill 1362 (HB1362) which would create new anti-LGBTQ laws.
In an interview with Billboard, he discusses his Valentine's Day 'love letter' on behalf of the LGBTQ community to fight the Texas legislation seeking to 'criminalize and restrict the simple act of a transgender person using the restroom that aligns with their gender identity' and 'force teachers to out LGBTQ students to their parents'.
The letter was co-signed by a wide range of celebrities including: Sting, Bon Iver, Misterwives, Amy Schumer, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lawrence, Alicia Keys, Emma Stone, Panic! At The Disco, Shirley Manson, and many more.
