Gregory Wayne Abbott (born November 13, 1957) is an American attorney who has served as the 48th governor of Texas since January 20, 2015. A member of the Republican Party, Abbott previously served as the 50th attorney general of Texas from 2002 to 2015. He is the third governor of any U.S. state to permanently use a wheelchair. He is also the first disabled governor in Texas history.
After Texas Governor Greg Abbott gave a direction to the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services to order investigation of parents of transgender children who have received gender-affirming surgeries as child abuse, numerous celebrities have spoken out against the action.
Now, stars like Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and more are jumping on board, noting their condemnation of the action and standing up for trans rights.
Ariana spoke up in her Instagram stories on Thursday, reposting the ACLU Instagram account’s post which claimed that the Governor’s letter has “no legal effect, can’t change Texas law, and can’t override the constitutional rights of Texas families.” The “Get Well Soon” singer also tagged the Texas Freedom Network‘s website in her post, which is a grassroots organization that works to advocate for “religious freedom, individual liberties and public education.” In addition, actor Elliot Page followed suit by condemning the actions from the Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who proclaimed on Monday that hormone therapy, puberty blockers, and other types of gender-affirming health procedures were a form of child abuse. “I am horrified by the inhumane and downright dangerous declarations by the Texas Governor and Attorney General,” Elliot said in a statement to Variety. “Trans youth deserve gender-affirming care and to be able to live their true, authentic selves without fear and oppression.
