Kesha has roared back onto the music scene with her powerful new singles off of her upcoming album, Rainbow.
In addition to making her fans cry while watching her music videos, the "Praying" singer has also been vocal about her support of the LGBT community—especially during these politically challenging times.
Recently Kesha and Spotify hosted a party for her fans out in Malibu, where she spoke about her LGBT Animals and how she feels a special attachment to them.
“I have always felt connected with the LGBTQ community,” she told People. “I think it’s because I have been bullied and been through s—, and I think a lot of my fans who are LGBTQ have been, too. I hate that, but it makes me feel connected to them.”
Not only is Kesha reaching out to her LGBT fans with her new music, but she has also teamed up with George Takei and GLAAD to promote a shirt from Omaze. Every t-shirt sold will support trans service members in the military with each purchase benefiting the organization and supporting "justice, inclusion and acceptance for the brave heroes fighting every day for our freedom."
"I’m so excited to share that George Takei and I have teamed up with GLAAD to spread the love and support transgender people in the military," Kesha posted on her Instagram. "We're all human, so let's stand up for each other."

In addition to house parties for her fans and supporting trans service members, Kesha's latest single "Hymn," is dedicated to all of the "outcasts," as she says in a personal essay she published on Mic:
I hope this is one of those songs that will find and connect with people who feel like outcasts, especially young people today growing up with the omnipresent internet. I really feel for them, because bullying today is so scary due to all of the technology. It breaks my heart to hear about kids being bullied online at such a young and sensitive age. I believe no one should be subjected to harassment and hate, and that includes online.
Kesha is back and using her voice to not only create a perfect pop tune, but to also help the LGBT community.
Maybe the title of her new album, Rainbow, is a nod to her queer fans?
