Among the appearances are Tony winner and Pose star Billy Porter, walking down a trailer park runway in front of protesting homophobes, in a summer caftan that even Diane von Furstenberg would be jealous of. Todrick Hall appears alongside Swift in rainbow platforms and jean cutoffs.

In addition to the two Kinky Boots stars, the music video features Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Rippon, and more (including a surprise appearance that squashes a longtime feud between the singer and another pop star).
