Swift took to the stage at iHeart Wango Tango in a flurry of rainbow goodness. During her set, she sang recent hit ME! with Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco, and also performed a number of old hits like I Knew You Were Trouble, Shake it Off and Style.

Before performing I Knew You Were Trouble, Swift said, “I thought we might take a little trip down memory lane, and I’d play some things I maybe haven’t played in a bit. So this is a song about… I don’t know if you’ve ever been here, but that feeling when somebody walks in and you think to yourself, “I know that person’s probably… What’s the word? Trouble.'”

She also took the time to talk about the Equality Act that she recently endorsed on her Instagram account, and the petition she created to make the government fight harder for LGBTQ rights. Before performing Delicate, she said, “Today is the first day of Pride Month. And you know a lot of my songs are about love and I just feel like who you love, and how you identify, you should be able to live your life the way you want to. You should have the same exact rights as everybody else. So I started this petition. And you can find the link on my Instagram.”

Additionally, she said, “It’s for the Equality Act. Which basically just says that we want to send a message to our government that we believe everybody should be treated fairly in this country. So if you sign it, it would really mean a lot to me. I think we need to stick up for each other. Don’t you?”
