Lena Dunham is staging her own revolt against Donald Trump.
Shortly after the U.S. President announced the removal of federal-level protection against bathroom use in public schools by transgender students, the “Girls” actress joined many other celebs in contesting his decision on social media. “Let’s fight hate & ignorance with love for trans teens, who are already facing steep odds and who need our support to grow and THRIVE,” she tweeted.
Dunham’s protest, however, didn’t stop there. The outspoken anti-Trump crusader went on to encourage her fans to help pro-LGBTQ charities and vowed to match donations up to $50,000.
“I’m matching all donations up to 50k to the Ruth Ellis Centre,” she announced. “Tweet me your donation receipt!”
She added: “Donate here to support LGBTQ youth. Give them safe spaces, support, and access to social services.”
The Ruth Ellis Centre is a Detroit-based organization that aims to provide support services to at-risk LGBTQ individuals.
On Wednesday, celebrities such as Ellen Degeneres, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Emmy Rossum and many other turned to social media to voice their concerns over Trump’s latest move.
