Megan Thee Stallion rocked rainbow hair and a teal-colored mask that matched her Champion tights and tank top on Sunday (June 14) at a Black Lives Matter protest in support of black trans rights in ..
The rapper posted a series of pics from the event, including one showing off her multi-colored hair and snaps with Miss Shalae — a trans woman who got a shout-out in Beyoncé’s Homecoming film — celebrity stylist EJ King, and her hairstylist Kellon Deryck.
In a post, Deryck said Megan « let me have fun with the color today, » noting that it was the first time he’d done this particular combo, which included Purple Raven, Mint of Steel, Cosmic Coral + Phoenix Fire and Sheer Power + Lightning Bolt. Deryck appears alongside the rapper in a picture in front of a rainbow-colored BLM display.
According to ET, among the others who appeared at the march — where BLM was spelled out on . Blvd. in rainbow colors — were Tiffany Haddish and Common. The BLM site said the protest, one of dozens held over the weekend, was « in direct response to racial injustice, systemic racism, and all forms of oppression… The LGBTQ+ community must extend its support to unite against oppression, police brutality, racism, transphobia, and the many other disparities disproportionately impacting the Black community. »
In a post seeking justice for police-involved killing victim Rayshard Brooks, Justin Timberlake also pointed to victims of « racism, violence and intolerance » this week, noting the killings of black trans women Riah Milton and Dominique Fells. Last week, Megan asked fans to help out Iyanna Dior, a black trans woman who was set upon and beaten by a mob in Minneapolis.
