“As a queer and intersectional artist and mother, raising my son in Nashville, it’s important to me to support these wonderful LGBTQIA+ advocacy organizations in Tennessee who work hard to build bridges, reduce harm, and promote equality for all Tennesseans. Tennessee,” Allison Russell said in a statement. “LGBTQIA+ contributions and creativity are central to all genres of modern song and performance art. I think it says a lot that so many in our community feel the same call to support, celebrate and cheer!”

“SB3/HB9 and SB1/HB1 are clearly targeted attacks on Tennesseans who have done nothing wrong,” added Jason Isbell. “These bills add to an attempt to eradicate a valuable part of our community and force good people to live in fear. We cannot, in good conscience, sit idly by and let that happen.”
