June kicks off Pride Month in many cities around the world—and Taylor Swift was on hand in Chicago to get it going at her concert on Saturday night. Right before she launched into her song "Delicate," the singer gave an emotional speech to the crowd that was dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community.
“It’s very brave to be vulnerable about your feelings in any situation, but it’s even more brave to be honest about your feelings and who you love when you know that it might be met with adversity from society,” she said while wearing a rainbow dress.
“This month and every month I want to send my love and respect to everybody who has been brave enough to be honest about how they feel, to live their lives as they are, as they feel they should be, as they identify,” Swift added.
“This is a month where I think we need to celebrate how far we’ve come, but I think we also need to acknowledge how far we have left to go. I want to send my love and respect to everybody who hasn’t felt comfortable enough to come out yet ... and may you do that on your own time and may we end up in a world where everyone can live and love equally and no one has to be afraid to all say how they feel,” she continued.

“When it comes to feelings and when it comes to love and searching for someone to spend your whole life with... it’s all just really, really delicate," Swift closed. "You know?"
