Taylor Swift‘s newest track is prompting something amazing — her fans stepping up to make donations to one of the biggest LGBTQ groups … all thanks to a shout out. 

Honchos at GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, tell TMZ … they’ve seen an influx in donations overnight after Taylor dropped her new song, “You Need to Calm Down.” 

The single is an anti-hate anthem that calls out anti-gay bullies, and includes the lyrics, “Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD?”

GLAAD recently started a fundraiser to support its LGBTQ advocacy work during Pride Month, setting a $1,300 goal as an homage to Taylor’s favorite number 13 … and we’re told many of the donations flowing in are for $13. 

The song’s also prompting a flood of pro-LGBTQ posts on social media. 

GLAAD executive Anthony Ramos is glad to have Taylor on their side … he says, “The fact she continues to use her platform and music to support the LGBTQ community and the Equality Act is a true sign of being an ally.”

Taylor made what GLAAD called a “very generous” donation earlier this month … and now her fans are following suit.
