Jennifer Lawrence to LGBT community: ‘Don’t be afraid, be loud!’

2016-11-20
Award winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has penned a short column for Broadly in which she urges the LGBT community to stay strong. The Hunger Games actress thinks that Donald Trump’s win as President-elect should motivate to continue fighting. “Let this be the fire you didn’t have before,” she writes. “If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of colour, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman – don’t be afraid, be loud!”  The Hillary Clinton supporter states that the only people that feel safe and have their rights protected are white men. “We’re all allowed to be sad that the present isn’t what we thought it was. But we mustn’t be defeated.” Lawrence was revealed to be the highest-paid female actor in the world but has been outspoken in the inequality pay gap between men and women. Referring to the workplace, Lawrence says: “We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair. It is not fair in the workplace, so you make it impossible to fail.” “And like Hillary, it might not work. But like Hillary, you can still be an inspiration and get important things done. Do not let this defeat you – let this enrage you! Let it motivate you!” More stories: We need to talk about the hottie in Britney’s ‘Slumber Party’ video – PICS 11 pictures that prove why Ricky Martin and fiancé  Jwan Yosef are total #RelationshipGoals
