Miss Major, Janelle Monáe Endorse Different Progressives

Griffin-Gracy and Monae

Just in time for Super Tuesday, as 14 states hold presidential primaries, some major queer celebrities have made their preferences for the Democratic nominee known.

Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a veteran of the Stonewall uprising and transgender pioneer, posted a video to Twitter Monday in support of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

“He’s the best guy to beat Donald Trump, and that’s the most important thing in this election — beating Donald Trump,” she said, adding, “Go, Bernie!”

Sanders thanked her for the endorsement.

Pansexual actor-singer Janelle Monáe posted a brief tweet Tuesday in support of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Warren likewise thanked her.

Other LGBTQ celebs backing Warren include singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge and soccer star Megan Rapinoe. Miley Cyrus supports Sanders, while Tim Gunn of Project Runway has come out for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. George Takei, Anthony Rapp, and others have voiced support Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., who is gay, but he’s now dropped out of the race and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden.
