The pop star wrote on her Instagram story that Booker had signed her Change.org position declaring support for the bill, which passed the House in May and would enshrine protections for LGBTQ Americans in federal law.

"Senator Booker signed the petition for the Equality Act!!! Be like Cory," Swift urged her fans in a caption on the story, which featured a picture of Booker's statement announcing his signature of the petition.

Booker is one of several 2020 Democratic candidates who has announced support for the act, including Sens.

“I personally reject the President’s stance that his administration, ‘supports equal treatment of all,’ but that the Equality Act, ‘in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights,’ ” Swift wrote in the letter.

“No. One cannot take the position that one supports a community, while condemning it in the next breath as going against ‘conscience’ or ‘parental rights,’ ” she said at the time.
