New Delhi [India], Feb. 25 (ANI): U.S President Donald Trump's decision to reverse Barack Obama's directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms created a storm nationwide and the latest one to voice concern is Beyonce. Extending her support to the LGBTQ students, Queen Bey shared a link of GLSEN.org, an organisation that advocates for LBGTQ students, on her official Facenook page. She wrote alongside, "#LGBTQ students need to know we support them. Share your support to #protecttransyouth at glsen.org/100days & put #KindnessInAction GLSEN." According to a report in the New York Times, acting against the wishes of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Attorney General Jeff Sessions pushed for Trump to rescind the bathroom rules put in place during the Obama administration. Ketty Perry, who recently slammed Trump during her performance at the BRITS 2017, too came up in support of the students and tweeted, "Trans friend, if you are struggling tonight, please reach out to @TrevorProject and @Translifeline. Equality for all! #ISTANDWITHGAVIN." (ANI)
