In a Facebook post on Thursday, the Queen Bee wrote, "#LGBTQ students need to know we support them. Share your support to #protecttransyouth at glsen.org/100days & put #KindnessInAction." The post included a link to GLSEN's Kindness in Action initiative, which aims to combat the "increase in reports of harassment, bullying, and violence towards LGBTQ students in schools" by encouraging participants to share "messages of support to LGBTQ students on social media."

"We are so thrilled that Beyoncé is standing up for transgender youth by joining GLSEN's 100 Days of Kindness campaign at this very difficult time," GLSEN's executive director Dr. Eliza Byard told . "There is a great deal of confusion and fear out there right now, and Beyoncé has the unique power to cut through the noise to deliver a crucial message of love and support to all transgender youth. Thank you, Beyoncé. (And I cannot wait to tell my daughters about your support.)"

In addition to her post on Facebook on Thursday, the superstar artist also posted a selfie with her daughter Blue Ivy to Instagram, which many fans interpreted as her way of telling the world she has a secret Snapchat account.
