On Monday, the "Vogue" entertainer announced that she is adding a stop in Nashville, Tennessee, along with seven other US cities to her world tour, set to kick off in Vancouver in July.
In a statement, the singer said "the oppression of the LGBTQ+ is not only unacceptable and inhumane" and making "America a dangerous place for our most vulnerable citizens, especially trans women of color."
Tennessee earlier this month saw the passage of two of the most sweeping and restrictive anti-trans and anti-drag laws in the country.
On March 2, Republican Gov. Bill Lee of Tennessee signed a bill into law that restricts public drag show performances, making his state the first to do so this year. The law is set to limit "adult cabaret performances" on public property so as to shield them from the view of children.
