Paramore’s Hayley Williams, a Tennessee native, has issued a statement via Instagram opposing two pending Tennessee bills that target the LGBTQ+ community.

The bills would criminalize drag performers and ban gender-affirming healthcare for trans youth. “Once again our state has passed two regressive and unfathomably harmful bills,” stated Williams.   

Lawmakers have sent the bills to Governor Bill Lee’s desk to be signed into law. The bill targeting drag performances in public spaces is the first drag ban in the nation to pass a state legislature.
