CHICAGO -- During Taylor Swift's second sold-out concert in Chicago on Saturday, she shared a heartfelt message about LGBTQ pride.
Before performing her song 'Delicate' at Soldier Field, Swift dedicated a message of love and bravery to the LGBTQ community -- noting that June is pride month.
"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,” Swift told the audience.

She continued, "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."
Fans responded positively to Swift's message on social media.
