President Trump made a shocking announcement this week, tweeting that transgender individuals will be banned from serving in the U.S. military. In the series of tweets, Trump wrote, "Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail."

People all over the world have been standing in staunch opposition to Trump's bigoted announcement, with celebrities using social media to make their feelings on the matter clear. And now, GLAAD and Billboard have brought together a group of musicians and artists who refuse to let Trump's hateful ideas, about transgender military personnel, win.

The video features Sia without her trademark wig, Rita Ora, Dua Lipa, Michael Stipe, cast members of Orange Is The New Black and RuPaul's Drag Race, and other celebrities who refuse to stand by while President Trump attempts to implement discriminatory legislation.
