Preach it, E!

Elton John is arguably the most famous gay musician in the world, so it's about time for him to officially speak out against Gov. Pat McCrory and his beyond bigoted House Bill 2.

Luckily, the 69-year-old AIDS ambassador did just that in an open letter to North Carolina through The Hill on Tuesday where he not only defended his LGBT peers, but also offered suggestions on how to move forward!

This man needs to get impeached, like now!

Gov. Pat McCrory was already slated to go down in history as one of the biggest opponents to modern civil rights, but he pretty much solidified that fact on Monday.

That's because the North Carolina governor just filed a lawsuit against the federal government hours before his deadline to repeal his bigoted House Bill 2!

Cyndi Lauper Explains Why She's Performing In North Carolina Despite Anti-LGBT Laws — Does She Have A Point??

Trans people just wanna have access to the bathroom. They just wanna.

Cyndi Lauper is without a doubt one of the most influential gay icons of the 1980s, which is why some fans questioned her decision to not cancel her shows in North Carolina despite the state's anti-transgender bathroom laws.

The pink lady already explained that she was going to donate all proceeds from her concerts to local LGBT-friendly charities, and now she's speaking out again!

Cyndi stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday to share her take on the controversy, and she actually made some really good points!

For one thing, she believes it's more supportive to physically be in North Carolina and to rally against resident bigot Gov. Pat McCrory than to voice your concerns from the sidelines.

In fact, the True Colors singer even shared a touching story about how deciding to play shows in Florida when Trayvon Martin was murdered actually helped the community!

We still think musicians cancelling their gigs sends a strong message, but we're glad artists like Cyndi are willing to slum it down South for the betterment of our transgender peers!

Ch-ch-check out Cyndi's politically charged Late Night appearance (above)!!!
