Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth has a message for religious people who oppose LGBT rights.

The 48-year-old Chenoweth plays Velma Von Tussle, a segregationist, in NBC's upcoming Hairspray Live! Tussle changes her views on race relations by the end of the show.

At a recent press junket for the production, Chenoweth was asked whether she felt a responsibility to her LGBT fans in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump's election and the recent wave of hate crimes.

“It's interesting being a person – not to get weird – but a person of faith, a woman in show business in the 21st century,” Chenoweth told gay glossy The Advocate. “God is love, and it seems like the opposite of that happens a lot, instead of acceptance and love. … Not tolerance – acceptance, that's my message.”

Hairspray Live! debuts December 7 on NBC.
