Jackie Evancho the classical crossover singer who gained national attention for performing the National Anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration has reached out to the President to discuss LGBTQ rights, more specifically rights for those who are transgender. Jackie Evancho’s sister Juliet is transgender and the singer is asking that she along with her sister be able to meet with Trump to discuss the issues transgender individuals deal with.
In her tweet, Jackie Evancho writes “@realDonaldTrump u gave me the honor 2 sing at your inauguration. Pls give me & my sis the honor 2 meet with u 2 talk #transgender rghts”
The tweet was sent out just minutes after the Department of Justice withdrew Obama-era guidance on transgender bathroom use in public schools.
