Singer-songwriter Kesha urges viewers to vote to protect LGBT rights in a new Why I Vote campaign video.

“In this election, especially, I feel like you're choosing between someone who is promising to build walls and someone who is hopeful,” Kesha said the 5-minute video. “And if those are my two options, I definitely want to go with hope.”

She said that in high school she was bullied and struggled with her own sexuality.

“I remember being bullied about what I wore and what music I listened to,” Kesha said. “I struggled finding my sexuality. I was just so scared. 'What if I am gay? What does that mean? I already get bullied – if I'm gay on top of this …?'”

“We need to protect the laws that have been groundbreaking,” Kesha added, a reference to last year's U.S. Supreme Court ruling that found that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry. “It's bigger than just who's sitting in the White House.”

“I'm Kesha. And I vote to protect equal rights for every human,” she concluded.
