Ryan Reynolds, Billy Porter, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Adam Rippon also make appearances in the colorful video.
The clip closes with Swift and Katy Perry — dressed as french fries and a hamburger — hugging. The two mended their friendship last year after publicly feuding.
The video finishes with the words: "Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally."
Earlier this month Swift announced that she supported the Equality Act.
